Quels tests génétiques disponibles pour les chevaux ?

Abstract : Many genetic mutations involved in either the expression of genetic diseases, or in variations of horse coat colours have been identified over the last thirty years. These changes are attracting interest from various levels of the industry, including veterinarians, breeders and trainers. Several genetic tests have thus been developed and are available. It is possible to manage matings to avoid the birth of foals carrying congenital anomalies or for breeders to participate in the prediction of the coat colours using genetic tests. Veterinary practitioners thus have a major role to play in initiating and promoting research and studies in genetic epidemiology, in particular by reporting cases to the Equine Genetic Anomalies Observatory.
