Information and Registration
After the success of last year’s client evening at the RDA, we have decided to move our annual get together online this year! We are going for a shorter format with just two speakers. It would be great if you are able to join us for what should be a very interesting evening.
If you would like to register your interest in attending, have any specific questions on either subject please complete the form below.
AN OVERVIEW OF EQUINE GENETIC TESTING WITH CHRISTA LAFAYETTE
We are really pleased to welcome Christa Lafayette, who is the founder of Etalon Diagnostics https://www.etalondx.com/ as a speaker. Etalon Diagnostics is the first company in the world to provide individuals with a comprehensive panel of genetic tests for horses and using their platform they help owners define expected breeding outcomes, look at risks for inherited diseases and even give information about the ancestry of your horse.
Christa and her team have also made several amazing discoveries in the equine genetics field, most recently looking at the genetic basis for kissing spines. She will share some of these discoveries, give an overview on where we are at in equine genetics and discuss what the future holds for genetic testing in horses.
