The Kennel Club Genetics Centre (KCGC) is slowly, but surely, settling into the Department of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Cambridge. The team now has a full complement of 9 members, all of whom have come from the Animal Health Trust (an indication of how much we all love and believe in the work that we do).
We have spent the first few weeks sorting out our new space, unpacking our samples, downloading data and finding our way around. As a result of the pandemic we are still largely working from home which has meant the moving in process has taken a bit longer than it would done under normal circumstances, but we are more or less ‘back to business’ now. The best way to contact us is via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or using the enquiry page on our website.
DNA Testing Service
To complement the research undertaken in the KCGC we are also working towards launching a DNA testing facility that will be operated independently from the KCGC. As with everything else, the pandemic has taken its toll and it has taken us much longer to establish the service than we hoped it would. However, we are making progress and expect to be open for business shortly.
