Ÿnsect, the world leader in insect production, today announces the creation of a genotyping chip named Axiom® YNS_Mol1, a world-first for insect breeding and a major step in the evolution of selection of larvae lines to produce insect-based proteins. This novel chip dedicated to the Tenebrio molitor mealworm will allow for selection based on the genomic diversity of the species. Made available to the wider scientific community, it represents a key element of Ÿnsect’s strategy, as well as a groundbreaking tool for fundamental research in the sector.

The chip will also be made available to the academic world to encourage international research on Tenebrio molitor.

By providing access to the genetic information of the species, Ÿnsect is actively supporting the development of knowledge of insects and their genetic characteristics, and opening the way to the discovery of new industrial applications for the edible insect sector and beyond for biomedical and environmental applications.
