New Test: Color Locus S (Piebald or Extreme White Spotting)

Domestic dogs have great diversity in white spotting patterns ranging from extreme white to minimal white or completely solid color. The amount of white color is determined by genetic factors as well as by stochastic events in pigment cell development. It is important to understand that white color in domestic dogs is controlled by many variants as well as random events in the maturation of the cells.
