Research Project: Creating and Verifying Commercial Genetic Tests for Goats

Location: Animal Disease Research

Project Number: 2090-32000-042-001-N
Project Type: Non-Funded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 29, 2017
End Date: Aug 28, 2022

Cooperator will develop and test commercial genotyping tests for goat PRNP gene including those with the S146 and K222 substitutions.

Cooperator will design commercial genotyping assays. The USDA, Agricultural Research Service (ARS) will provide genotype-known DNA samples to use in verifying the commercial genotyping assays. Cooperator will then use these DNAs to test and verify commercial genotyping assays.
