2nd newsletter of the Veterinary Genetics Laboratory

Following the interest in our first newsletter in August we have decided to produce a second one. November is usually the time of the year when the VGL, similar to other entities, focuses on finalising current projects and plans for the next year. Throughout the year, the laboratory has received a number of requests about the value of the DNA certificate and the DNA profile, parentage testing, colour variant testing in wildlife, sample collection for DNA profiling and individual animal identification and traceability systems and how this all relates to improving breeding of these animals. We have addressed a few of these queries in brief in this newsletter. We hope that these short explanations will be helpful.
