DNA Testing for Health & Discovery
Author: Erin Chu, DVM, PhD & Kate Robinson, DVM, DABVP
Not all DNA testing services use the same molecular techniques to get results. These directly inform cost and turnaround time. The data that you receive will also vary! At the molecular level, these services also use different molecular techniques to get your dog's mutation status at any given genomic location.
By the end of this course, each learner will be able to:
- Compare and distinguish different methodologies and available products for genetic testing in animals.
- Discuss the interpretation of health risk testing.
- Assess methods for evaluating inbreeding and genetic diversity.
- Understand and discuss different study designs for genetic discovery.
