After an update from the Breed Health Group, we are pleased to be able to announce that the Animal Health Trust is now almost ready to go live with a survey and sample collection for this study.
A Genome Scan
The plan is to conduct a project aimed at identifying regions of the genome associated with PGSD by performing a ‘Genome-Wide Association Study’ (GWAS), also known as a genome scan.
Further information on this study will shortly be issued by the AHT research team in the form of a flyer. It will give all of the information people need to know about who can take part and how.
As soon as it is released, details will be given on the Border Terrier Breed Health Group website and we will keep you up to date here on our website too.
