    Article in Journal Nature Puts Canine Genetic Testing Industry Under the Magnifying Glass

     

    petgenomicsmed.pngA WBUR Boston (NPR) piece published July 25 addresses a recent article in the prestigious journal Nature, where three experts call for reining in the unregulated pet genetics industry. The NPR story includes our Harmonization of Genetic Testing for Dogs (HGTD) initiative (which aims to Improve standardization of, and access to, robust genetic testing) and one of our HGTD Leadership Genetic Test Providers, Embark Veterinary (thanks to Adam Boyko from Embark for bringing the HGTD into the discussion).

    Another article featuring a Q&A interview with two of the Nature article authors was published in Science.

    Our partners in the Finnish Kennel Club posted an excellent article in the Finnish dog publication Koiramme that profiles the HGTD and ongoing efforts by the Nordic Kennel Union (original Finnish article and English translation available).

    IPFD's Response
    On July 26, IPFD issued a response to the Nature article and subsequent media coverage, outlining our work on the HGTD initiative to address many of the concerns raised in the original article: Genetics and Genomics for Dogs: Balancing daunting challenges and great potential.

    Get Involved
    harmonization-of-genetic-testing-for-dogs-2-12-2018.pngWe welcome additional participant GTPs, more collaborators from any stakeholders concerned with dog health and welfare, the advice of experts, the participation of breed clubs and other consumer groups. We stand ready to provide more information to ongoing discussions.

    Please feel free to contact us as we work together for healthy dogs and to support those who breed and own them: IPFD CEO, Dr. Brenda Bonnett, at brenda.bonnett@ipfdogs.com and/or HGTD Project Director, Aimee Llewellyn-Zaidi, at aimee.llewellyn-zaidi@ipfdogs.com.
