The Molecular Cytogenetics Laboratory at the Texas A&M School of Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences (VMBS)
performs a wide range of cytogenetic, molecular, and DNA-based testing for clinical and research facilities,
private companies, veterinarians, breeders, and animal owners.

For chromosome analysis, we use both traditional and state-of-the-art techniques and carry out tests for all domestic animals and a broad range of wild species, including non-mammalian vertebrates. Analyses are done either for a fee or on a collaborative basis.

Available Services:

  • Karyotyping from blood, tissues and cell lines
  • Karyotyping with routine staining or G-banding of chromosomes
  • Molecular cytogenetic analysis using Fluorescent In Situ Hybridization (FISH)
  • FKBP6 Genotyping — Test for Thoroughbred stallion subfertility from blood or hair follicles
