Canine Genetic Analysis Project
A Research Focus on the Statistics & Molecular Genetics of Diseases in Dogs
Department of Animal Science, UC DAVIS
The project is ongoing and we are seeking samples (blood and/or buccal)
for Addison's and Epilepsy Diseases for both affected dogs and healthy older dogs (7+ yr).
To Evaluate the Mode of Inheritance of Canine Diseases
To Identify the Genes Responsible for Disease Expression
To Join the Tools of Statistics with the Promise of Molecular Genetics
*Bearded Collie*Great Dane*Leonberger*Portuguese Water Dog*Standard Poodle*West Highland White Terrier*
*Belgian Tervuren*Belgian Sheepdog*English Mastiff*Giant Schnauzer*Miniature Poodle*Standard Poodle*Toy Poodle*
If you have previously submitted a dog to our study,
we would appreciate regular health updates, including if the dog is still healthy.
