We deliver genomic analysis to the cannabis industry – cutting-edge bioinformatics with data drawn from Lighthouse's proprietary genotyping array and whole genome sequencing. We provide valuable insights to clients by characterizing cannabis genovars with reports on ancestry, genetic stability, novelty and other key metrics – and offer the industry's only Genovar ID certification standard to ensure that consumers receive a consistent product, time after time.
Lighthouse supports client breeding programs by identifying genomic markers associated with important traits. We provide consultations from the early stages of experimental design through to the delivery and interpretation of results.
THE LIGHTHOUSE GENOVAR ASSAY
We designed the LGA to support breeders, researchers and product authentication needs with the industry's most comprehensive genotyping array. It provides the most rapid and cost-effective method for obtaining high-density genomic data. The LGA targets approximately 40,000 strategically-selected genomic markers across over 5,000 unique genes and all chromosomes.
WHOLE GENOME SEQUENCING
DATA TO DRIVE SCIENCE
We provide Whole Genome Sequencing at 15X coverage of your plant's entire length of DNA, allowing us to analyze over 10 Million variable markers. We can delivery data raw for you to analyze, or run bioinformatics processes customized to provide results according to your business and research needs.
Improve your genetic Assets
Business profits ultimately depend on the genetic fitness of your cannabis assets. We collaborate with breeding programs to develop improved genetics specific to our clients' needs. Screening a breeding population with the Lighthouse Genovar Assay reduces the time and costs of breeding, while increasing the precision of results achieved. Breeding with genomic insight allows clients to boost production efficiency while meeting targeted consumer needs.
