DNA Database??

Found this on the GRCA website last night:
Golden Retriever Club of America - Health

Does anyone know if this collection effort is still going on? I emailed the contact and it bounced back. I would like to submit Toby's DNA to this if they can use it to help with research into the breed.

Last September I sent Dylans DNA to Dog Genome Project in Cambridge MA 02142.

Our vet didn't charge us to draw his blood, I only had to pay for the shipping.
I used FedEx $16.05 to ship.

I hope this helps.

Then I get extra money I will get all of my pups blood drawn and shipped for their DNA to be added to the Dog Genome Project.

Also we are having our Tennis Ball Bonanza this weekend. I will see about doing a flyer up and putting it up to have it out there for all the golden owners done. The more the merrier

Here is another one:

I think I'm going to participate in this one, probably with a blood draw.

I think that the Morris Animal Foundation has some good information for all animals on research, grants and health.
Morris Animal Foundation homepage

Golden Retriever Foundation has some good information
