OUR MISSION is to reduce the incidence of heritable diseases in the Doberman by studying and addressing the depression in the overall genetic diversity of the Doberman breed and studying and researching widespread disease-associated mutations, through comprehensive genetic testing and analysis, development and sharing of evidence-based breeding findings, development of online breeder decision-making tools, and long-term tracking of results to measure the effectiveness of varied approaches to breeding -- in terms of genetic health and longevity.
Key Elements of the Doberman Diversity Project
- COMPREHENSIVE GENETIC TESTING AT A REDUCED COST
- FREE EVIDENCE-BASED ONLINE MATCHMAKING TOOLS FOR BREEDERS
- LONG-TERM FOLLOW-UP AND ANALYSIS
- TEST 1,000 DOBERMANS FROM ACROSS THE WORLD TO SEARCH FOR GENETIC ASSOCIATIONS WITH DOBERMAN DISEASES IN A NEW DOBERMAN-FOCUSED HIGH POWERED GWAS (GENOME WIDE ASSOCIATION STUDY)
Our goal is provide access to all of these advanced resources FREE.
No paid membership, annual fee, or per use fees.
