Genetic Diversity of US Bearded Collies

Addison’s and SLO Samples

Needed NOW for Research

Dr. Anita Oberbauer’s lab will be doing whole genome sequencing to identify causal genes or mutations for primary Addison’s disease in the Bearded Collie.  In turn, that would lead to development of a clinically useful tool for breeders to integrate into breeding decisions.

Whole genome sequencing requires fresh blood sample for extracting DNA.
