  • in reply to: "Sample is being sequenced" how long did it take after this? #15025

    Two of my dogs were among the first round of test kits to go out; it took about a year for their samples to be sequenced, and another year after sequencing was completed before any results were posted. (Part of it I’m sure is that the results section of the website hadn’t been developed yet).

    I work in health research myself, so I already knew that science is just not a fast process…. but it didn’t make me any less impatient to get the results, haha!

    Dawn,

    The article that Kathleen linked to does list the longevity difference. Yellow and black labs lived, on average, 12.1 years (combined), compared with 10.7 years for chocolate labs – a difference of 1.4 years. Not huge, but statistically significant (i.e., unlikely to be due to chance alone).

    When you retake a survey, are both the old and the new answers maintained in your dataset? If so, are there any plans to look at the role of genetics in how behaviour may change over time, for example, how elastic behaviour could be with training?

    If the symptoms started when you moved, is it possible the allergen is environmental, and not food?

    Has anyone else found the activity suggestions to be completely inaccurate? My one dog, who is lazy, hates running, and has never seriously chased anything in his life, has 5/5 paw prints for herding. (He is also not a traditional herding breed).
