Are there opportunities to increase the commercial elements – many of us are using overseas labs for test/panels – also the pet market has strong interest in identifying breeds in mixed breed dogs. Could this not be used to offset research?
We operate an in-house genetic testing service, Canine Genetic Testing: https://www.cagt.co.uk. One way for stakeholders to support the Genetics Centre is to use this service for their DNA testing needs as all profits are used to fund our research. If your breed uses a test that CAGT does not currently offer, please contact us – we are always happy to discuss adding new tests to our portfolio.
