In 2013, EVOLUTION acquired the French leader laboratory of genetic analysis and the only genomic analysis laboratory in France: LABOGENA.
LABOGENA was created in 1994 as an extension to the genetic analyses performed on animals by INRA (NAtional Institute for Agricultural Research). High-tech resources like the high throughput genotyping platform and its expert workers have made the laboratory a benchmark in the world of biotechnology. The laboratory has done more than 300,000 analyses a year, 54% of which were in the bovine sector. Its areas of analysis are:
- Determining genes of interest
- Genetic anomalies and diseases
LABOGENA is also a considerable resource when it comes to preparing for the future: the laboratory is already working on future solutions such as new generation DNA sequencing techniques.
