TILLING, Mutant screening and Reverse Genetics

Plants with mutations in your gene of commercial or academic interest

The TILLING platform has high throughput capabilities that can identify plants with mutations in your gene of commercial or academic interest. TILLING lines (Targeting Induced Local Lesions in Genomes) are not considered genetically modified from a regulatory perspective.


The method combines a standard and efficient technique of mutagenesis using a chemical mutagen such as ethyl methanesulfonate (EMS) with a sensitive DNA screening-technique that identifies single base mutations (also called point mutations) in a target gene.


Lines with mutations in your gene of interest can be ordered online or the platform can perform a conventional TILL for you (up to 1.2kb of genomic sequence) including primer design, production and testing.
