Our team published the most comprehensive, chromosome scale annotated reference genome for Psilocybe cubensis, and since then we have sequenced more than 100 P. cubensis genomes. We used that information and experience to design the PsiloSEEK® assay so that labs and growers can confirm P. cubensis genetics with a simple qPCR assay.
PsiloSEEK® can be run on multiple qPCR instruments and easily automated on liquid handling automation solutions from Agilent Technologies, Hamilton Robotics, and MGI/BGI.
Our team has provided Cannabis-specific qPCR assays to the field since 2015, covering a variety of targets, including human pathogens, plant pathogens, plant sex, genetic trait screening, and more. Testing labs around the world trust Medicinal Genomics, and several assays have received AOAC approval.
The Medicinal Genomics team has made significant contributions to the field of psychedelic mushroom sequencing and analysis.
