Project Number: 2090-32000-042-002-N
Project Type: Non-Funded Cooperative Agreement
Start Date: Oct 1, 2017
End Date: Sep 30, 2022
Cooperator will develop and test commercial genotyping assays for goat PRNP gene substitutions S146 and K222. Cooperator will develop and test commercial genotyping assay for sheep ZNF389 insertion-deletion important in Rambouillet sheep.
Cooperator will design commercial genotyping assays. 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.
