Gene search

We offer a bespoke TILLING service on our populations of mutagenized model and crop species.

Tell us what gene you would like to investigate and we will pick the optimum region to TILL, design the primers, carry out the TILLING and return to you a list of mutations.

You can then pick the mutations you are interested in and request seeds of the lines bearing those mutations.

We call this a 'conventional TILL' and costs £3,200

Click on your species of interest below to bring up a list of genes and then click on the gene to discover the mutations that have been found, then click on the mutation for further information. You can then click ‘Request’ in the pop-up to request the material.

For the Brassica rapa population you have two choices: searching the re-sequenced lines (with the RS suffix); searching conventional TILLs. The two do not always return the same mutations. For the resequenced lines it is best to search on the gene name as there are a large number of genes recorded. You can then request these and we will send you seeds of up to five lines for a small handling charge £250.

If you do not find your gene of interest contact us as data is not released immediately upon completing a TILL. Some material is also restricted.
