Gretchen, we cannot say exactly when the results will be available. Right now we are still in the early stages of our research collecting samples, and working on our methods. We originally had planned to genotype the samples, but we are now seeing that this is not providing us with as much data as we would like. We want to be able to provide you with as much data as possible, so we are working on new ways to assess the samples, such as low-coverage sequencing.

When results are ready they will be uploaded to your Darwin’s Dogs profile. As of right now, in terms of the saliva sample, the notification of when received and sample status is what we can provide. For the behavior aspect of this research, we are releasing new surveys each month for participants to take. Please keep checking into your profile for these surveys and updates about our research. Also, you can stay up to date with what is going on by reading our Monthly Pupdate and checking into our social media pages.
