Genetic Identification Services (GIS) was established in 1994 to serve the agriculture, aquaculture, and wildlife ecology communities through the development and use of custom genetic markers for a wide variety of applications. GIS has extensive experience in the use of proprietary techniques to develop microsatellite-enriched libraries for academic, commercial, and government entities. GIS has also developed and applied microsatellite loci in studies involving a wide range of plant and animal species.
GIS has developed libraries for researchers in the United States, Canada, Europe, Africa, Asia, Central and South America and Australia. GIS' laboratory is located in the Los Angeles area and is specifically designed to produce highly-enriched libraries in a matter of weeks by a specially-trained staff of laboratory technicians that have many years of practical experience developing microsatellite markers.
