CGAP COVID-19 UPDATE April 2021
The UC Davis campus continues to be in a limited operations status.
Due to limited staff on hand, we ask that you please contact us directly prior to sending a blood sample from your dog to the Canine Genetic Analysis Project.
If you have prior consent from our lab to send a blood sample, we will be in contact with you so that we may track the package. If you have requested swab kits, there may be a delay in shipment. Please know that our data analysis continues for Addison’s disease, Epilepsy and SLO during this time.
We wish all the best to you and your dogs! Take care and stay healthy!
Welcome to the website for the Canine Genetic Analysis Project (CGAP) at the UC Davis Department of Animal Science!
We are accepting samples for Addison’s, Epilepsy and SLO projects for both affected dogs and healthy older dogs.

If your dog has genotype data in the form of a zip file (tfam/tped files) and you would be willing to send the data to our study, please email the file to firstname.lastname@example.org Please include a health questionnaire with each dog’s data file submission.
The buccal swab kit and/or blood sample you submit is for participation in a research study only.
This research does NOT test to verify if your dog does or does not have the disease.
All sample submissions are kept confidential and results for individual dogs will NOT be made available.
