Hi Jasmin,

Thank you for notifying us about the missing field for New Guinea Singing Dog in the feedback section — I’ll see that this gets updated, as it will be important for recruiting enough dogs to construct and update the breed reference panel.

Right now, we have 5 published samples from NGSDs, as well as 4 other NGSDs enrolled in Darwin’s Dogs (in addition to your dogs).

We aim to have 12 dogs to complete the panel for NGSD, even if they’re descended from a single pair, so that we can sufficiently cover any genetic variation that established throughout the population’s history. Your dogs will help us reach this goal, so thank you very much for your participation.
