We apologize for the long wait, and understand your frustrations.
I can assure you that your dogs sample remains safe and stable. Your dog is participating for free, meaning we will support the sequencing process when the funds are available. We continue to write up and apply for more grants so we can do so. We too are very eager to support our free participation samples.
If you do not want to wait, we have provided the option for owners to support their dogs sample to be sequenced (since the sample is with us it would only be $99).
Of course, the choice to remind participating for free or support your dogs sample is up to you!
We thank you very much for your patience, participation and for completing the behavioral surveys, which helps us to apply for more grants!
