For horses The Animal Genetics Laboratory mainly carries out parentage controls. There are also specific tests for defects and coat colours as well as performance traits (Synchrogait).

How to proceed

1. Order a sampling kit by filling out the form or e-mail hgenlab@slu.se.

2. Fill out the form, preferably directly in the pdf-file or by hand on the printed version. Horses that will be registered in ASVH or SIF do not need this form to accompany the DNA sample. Please follow the instruction from the registry of your breed in this matter.

3. Take the hair samples as directed in the document 'Instructions for sampling hair for DNA-typing'.
Incorrectly fitted samples entail extra work load and will be charged with an additional cost.

4. Send samples and signed forms to: Animal Genetics Laboratory, SLU, P O Box 7023, SE-750 07 Uppsala, SWEDEN.

Normal turnaround time is about 10-15 days after sample arrival at the Animal Genetics Laboratory.

What is Synchrogait?

SynchroGait is a diagnostic DNA test. It is based on a research project in which we identified a gene variant that has a major impact on the gait and coordination of horses. This exciting discovery is the first of its kind and was recently published in Nature, a well-respected scientific journal. The SynchroGait test enables you to identify one of the most important genetic factors that affects the performance of a trotting horse and that is permissive for alternative gaits, such as pacing in Icelandic horses.
