DNA Sequencing to Support Biodiversity Conservation, Plant Breeding and Protection of Intellectual Property

Cost-effective and high-quality whole-genome sequencing is crucial for characterizing plant germplasm and its utilization in plant breeding. At the Plant and Animal Genome (PAG) conference in January 2024, Dr. Robert Henry from the University of Queensland discussed the transformative impacts of DNBSEQ technology-based sequencing on biodiversity, germplasm selection for breeding, breeding processes, and intellectual property protection. 

Highlights of this talk: 

  • Advancements in DNA sequencing technologies including short-read, synthetic long-read, and spatial transcriptomics 
  • Focus on significant horticultural species and conservation through a $30M National Tree Genomics program in Australia 
  • Utilizing informative genomic insights and data for plant breeding, restoration, and conservation
