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 request).
Our turn around time for delivering results once samples are received 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.
