GeneSeek Genomic Profiler for Dairy-LD (low density)
Product Information Sheet (pdf)
This custom GeneSeek Genomic Profiler (GGP) low density BeadChip utilises Illumina Infinium chemistry and features more than 26,000 SNPs which are vital for prediction of genetic merit. This includes many disease and performance trait SNPs, including the Igenity profile, parentage SNP and key abnormalities.

GeneSeek Genomic Profiler Bovine 150K
Product Information Sheet (pdf)
The custom GGP Bovine 150K features more than 150,000 SNPs for increased genomic selection power and is ideal for imputation to higher density marker sets to support research, and for the most accurate prediction of elite breeding animals.

GGP chips also include:
  • SNP parentage
  • Beta casein A/B
  • Beta-lactoglobulin
  • Black/red coat color
  • Bovine leukocyte adhesion deficiency
    (BLAD)
  • Chondrodysplasia
  • Citrullinemia
  • Deficiency of uridine monophosphate synthase
    (DUMPS)
  • Dunn color
  • Holstein haplotypes and causative mutations
    impacting fertility (HH1, HH2 and HH3)
  • Jersey fertility haplotype 1
  • Kappa casein I and II
  • Silver color dilutor
  • Y chromosome infertility
  • Complex vertebral malformation (CVM)*
  • Horned/polled*
  • Beta casein A2*
  • Brachyspina*
  • Hypotrichosis_KRT71 (rat tail)*

*Additional royalty fees will be applied for these optional, licensed tests


Igenity Horned/polled
The presence of horns in commercial cattle are known to cause performance losses and damage to carcasses. This simple genetic test can determine the carrier state of an animal. Available for Holstein, Jersey, Brown Swiss, Ayshire, Guernsey, and Milking Short Hair.

SeekSire Parentage Testing and Pregnancy Detection
GeneSeek’s SeekSire program and early stage pregnancy detection also is available for dairy cows.
