EAOD Project Update

As of the close of 2016, the HEF has acquired DNA samples from 400+ North American dogs, over 75 of whom have been BAER tested. Whole Genome Sequencing is currently being conducted on 8 affected dogs.  The sequencing should be completed within the next two weeks, after which the data will be analyzed, with the Genome Wide Association Study to follow, based on the results of the WGS.  Our sincere thanks go out to all of you who have contributed samples, pedigrees, information and financial support to this ongoing effort.
