Importance of genetic tests for domestic animals and birds
Role of genetic tests for domestic animals and birds breeding is increasing. Animals can be genotyped in a very simple and non-invasive way to check the pedigree, and sex in birds can be determined much earlier than possible by conventional methods.
Progress in technology and breeding have led to developing genetic tests for inherited diseases causing damage in breeding. Animals can also be tested for a trait desirable in your breeding program.
Infectious diseases present a significant threat to healthy breeding. The causing agents can be identified fast with Real-time PCR, whether it is a latent, invasive or regressive infection.
