Overview--  Ongoing research at the Animal Genetic Testing and Research Laboratory focuses on identifying mutations responsible for heritable disorders and color mutations in horses and dogs.  The goal is development of DNA-based tests to identify carrier and affected animals to assist owners in making informed decisions when breeding their animals. 

Breed organizations with specific research interests are encouraged to contact Dr. Kathryn Graves to discuss their needs.
