LIGHTHOUSE GENOMICS

Lighthouse delivers genomic analysis to the natural product supply chain chain – cutting-edge bioinformatics drawing upon genotyping and gene sequencing technologies. We deliver deep insights on the ancestry, genetic stability, novelty and the unique genetic identity of plant genomes, proudly supporting the Cannabis Authenticity and Purity Standard in partnership with Purity-IQ and the NHP Research Alliance. Lighthouse also works with clients to map their populations of genetic assets to identify regions of value in support of business and breeding strategy. 

SNP GENOTYPING

THE LIGHTHOUSE SNP ARRAY

Lighthouse designs SNP arrays and targeted assays to support breeders, researchers and product authentication needs. Our first SNP array for cannabis provides the most rapid and cost-effective method for obtaining high-density genomic data of Cannabis and hemp. The Cannabis assay 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 high coverage of any plant species. We provide advanced bioinformatics processes customized to deliver results according to your business and research needs.

MARKER-ASSISTED BREEDING

IMPROVE YOUR GENETIC ASSETS

Business profits ultimately depend on the fitness of genetic assets. Lighthouse supports breeders in developing improved genetics specific to our clients’ needs. Screening a breeding population with a Lighthouse SNP array reduces the time and costs of breeding, while improving  the quality of results achieved. Genomic insights allow clients to boost production efficiencies while meeting targeted consumer needs.
