Silmäys eri koirarotujen perimänlaajuisesti mitattuun monimuotoisuuteen

Vuoden päätteeksi halusimme tarjota kaikille koirien DNA-testauksesta kiinnostuneille nopean silmäyksen eri koirarotujen perimänlaajuisesti mitattuun monimuotoisuuteen. Listattujen heterotsygotiatasojen pohjalta saa yhdellä silmäyksellä käsityksen eri rotujen tilanteesta tämän hetkisen testatun otannan perusteella.

Quick overview to the genome-wide measured diversity levels in different dog breeds

Ahead of the New Year, we want to provide you with a quick overview to the genome-wide measured diversity levels in various breeds. The brief listing helps you quickly get an understanding of  the kind of differences there may be between the pedigreed breeds in terms of the measured heterozygosity.


The Samoyed takes its name from the Samoyedic people, an Asiatic group of nomadic origins living in Siberia. These reindeer herders bred the fluffy white dogs to help with the herding, and to pull sleds when they moved. In Europe, the breed is known also as Bjelkier. In Russian, the dogs are called Voinaika which means lead or direction dog or guard, hunting and war dog.

Kick-off of a global MyDogDNA Research Programme 2013 at the European Dog Show, Geneva

A warm thank you to all of you who visited our stand at the European Dog Show 2013 in Geneva and showed such a big interest towards the very first MyDogDNA Research Programme, the new MyDogDNA Pass as well as the first truly global dog DNA database.  We were pleased to meet both our existing customers as well as many new show dog enthusiasts! Your useful feedback will guide us further with the development of both the MyDogDNA Pass and the MyDogDNA Breeder, the first dog matchmaking tool built on top of the analysed data.

DNA-deittailu edistää koirarotujen terveyttä - Nyt myös koirasi voi löytää itselleen kumppanin verkosta!

Genoscoper, suomalainen eläinten DNA-diagnostiikkaan erikoistunut laboratorio, on tuonut saataville maailman ensimmäisen koiran perimän terveyskartoituksen, MyDogDNA-terveyspassin, ja sen ympärille rakentuvan koiranomistajia, kasvattajia ja kaikkia koirien terveyden eteen työskenteleviä hyödyttävän globaalin koirien DNA-tietokannan. Uusi perimän terveyskartoitus testaa koiralta samanaikaisesti yli 100 tunnettua perinnöllistä sairautta ja ominaisuutta sekä mittaa ensimmäistä kertaa koiran DNA-testauksen historiassa perimän monimuotoisuuden niin yksilöltä kuin rodusta.
