Research Project: Creating and Verifying Commercial Genetic Tests for Goats

Location: Animal Disease Research

Project Number: 2090-32000-035-02-N
Project Type: Non-Funded Cooperative Agreement

Start Date: Aug 29, 2017
End Date: Sep 30, 2020

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

Approach:
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.
