As of mid 2020, no further samples are being accepted for this database as the Animal Health Trust has had to permanently close its doors. The existing highly valuable DNA repository will not be lost: the scientists responsible for this database are working to establish it in a new home and when this is finalized we will pass this information on. It is not clear whether the rehomed database will continue to accept samples; if not, the FCRSA Health Committee will identify an alternative resource to which our members can contribute. This may take some time.
