Use of specific high-throughput genotyping tools to select poultry and aquaculture populations

Through internal R&D and research programmes, SYSAAF aims to offer its members the best possible use of genomics in their populations. SYSAAF supports its members to implement the most efficient selection methods and the most adapted to their needs. These are now 10-year-olds of thousands of genotypings that are performed each year :

  • The assignment of relatives (aquaculture and poultry species),
  • Quantification of hybridization rates (poultry game),
  • Estimation of genetic diversity (aquaculture and poultry species),
  • Detection of undesirable genes (poultry species),
  • And genomic selection (Aquaculture and poultry species).

Internal R&D work is also carried out within the Transversality Développement Génomique and the Transversality Évaluation Génétique, in order to evolve the data processing tools that are then used for routine treatments, but also in R&D contexts.

SYSAAF is involved in the planning of the analyses carried out for aquaculture species over the year, in consultation at least monthly with the partner platforms, Labogena and Gentyane. Genotyping data is transferred and stored on SYSAAF databases and analyzed by employees.
