The purpose of our genomic analysis is quite different from that of commercial DNA test kits. We pair our genetic sequence data with the detailed health information provided by participants through survey responses and veterinary electronic medical records. By comparing this information for tens of thousands of individuals, we will be able to identify genetic biomarkers for a wide range of health conditions. The various commercial tests on the market use previously identified biomarkers. In contrast, our goal is to discover new regions of the genome that can help us better understand the joint role of genetics and environment in determining canine health.
