Could you remind me when KCGC was founded? Is it correct to divide the £6.5 million funding ‘over the years’ by the number of years the KCGC has existed to determine annual funding? Is it a possibility that the costs of CAGT DNA testing will increase?
The KCGC was formally founded in 2009, although the AHT had been undertaking canine genetics research prior to that. Our current annual running costs are about £500,000 per year. The genetic testing market is a busy place, so we have to keep the costs of our tests within a competitive range.
