Mutational breeding is a powerful tool to characterize plant gene function, specific biological processes, and correlations between genotypes and phenotypic traits, and has been widely used in crop trait improvement.

Plant mutations can be induced by physical stimuli (e.g., X-rays, α- and β-particles, fast neutrons, and ultraviolet light), which often result in chromosomal changes, or by chemical treatments (e.g., ethyl methanesulfonate (EMS)) which often result in point mutations. Alternatively, mutations can also be introduced through advanced genetic engineering technologies such as CRISPR/CAS9 and RNAi.

Mutations can not only be easily detected by conventional polymerase chain reaction (PCR) methods, but also be screened by high-throughput technologies such as whole genome sequencing. Targeting induced local damage in the genome (TILLING) is also a popular approach, which allows high-throughput detection of random mutations within the genome. TILLING technology is a very feasible technology and has been applied in various plants such as Arabidopsis, Tribulus terrestris, Lotus root, Rapeseed, Tomato, Rice, Corn, Barley, Lotus, Poplar, and Wheat.

Now, Lifeasible provides efficient and reliable one-stop services for plant mutation breeding for customers worldwide, including mutation induction, mutation detection, and validation of candidate gene function. Its excellent team of scientists, experts, and technical support is committed to the highest level of customer satisfaction and will work closely with its customers to ensure that each project receives the required attention and support.

"We have rich experience in all facets of plant breeding. Our skilled scientists and experts have contributed decades of dedicated work for the exploring and optimizing of advanced modern breeding methods. We proudly offer those services to help with plant breeding research." Said one of the representative speakers from Lifeasible.
