The site navigation utilizes arrow, enter, escape, and space bar key commands. Left and right arrows move across top level links and expand / close menus in sub levels. Up and Down arrows will open main level menus and toggle through sub tier links. Enter and space open menus and escape closes them as well. Tab will move on to the next part of the site rather than go through menu items.

Breed Detection

Behind The Science

To provide accurate breed detection results you need three things: a large breed database, a sophisticated algorithm and a significant number of markers strategically placed across the genome. WISDOM PANELTM canine DNA tests features the largest breed database of over 250 breed, types and varieties represented in more than 15,000 samples. We examine your dog’s DNA at 1800+ points (markers) and send the data to a computer that evaluates them using an advanced algorithm and more than 17MM calculations. The algorithm uses information from our extensive sample database to analyze your dog’s potential family trees going back three generations. After giving each of the millions of possible combinations a score based on how well it matches your dog’s data, the computer selects the tree with the overall best score and that is what is reported in your dog’s results.

Quality And Accuracy

The process by which we determine the breed ancestry of your dog is called genotyping and is conducted on a canine IlluminaTM InfiniumTM chip created specifically for our tests. The chips are processed and analyzed at GeneSeek Laboratories in Lincoln, Nebraska. GeneSeek, a subsidiary of Neogen Corporation, is the world’s largest animal genomics testing facility, processing approximately 1.5 million samples a year from around the world. They are the most experienced laboratory in the world for canine DNA identification and their technology employs high-resolution DNA genotyping for identity and trait analysis in a variety of important agricultural plant and animal species. Geneseek is ISO 17025 certified, compliant with current AAHA guidelines and accredited by both A2LA and the USDA.
