Animal Genetics Laboratory
The Animal Genetics Laboratory offers DNA
genotyping used for identification, parentage verification, and
determination of specific homozygous/heterozygous gene mutations in
animals. The analysis provides useful information for diseases,
coat colors, as well as physical traits. Currently, the lab
provides routine services for testing horses, donkeys, and cattle
in addition to goats and sheep (upon requests).
Our turn around time for delivering results once samples
are recieved is two weeks. Our lab will provide you with
detailed results specific to the tests requested. Clients must send
pulled hair samples with at
least 30 hair follicles attached. We also accept blood, semen, and
buccal swab samples, however you need to contact the director Dr. Rytis
Juras before sending samples other than hair.
