21.3.2019 Dobermann Genetest-Project in TiHo Hannover: Chromosome 5 results related to Dobermann DCM in the european population

Spooky Woods Black Maori - wild type
Jotunheim's Thor - wild type
Jotunheim's Pandora - wild type

Interpretation of results:
This is not a normal Genetic test, but rather a risk factor assessment. Dobermans with both mutant and carrier genotypes are at a statistically higher risk to develop DCM. Dobermans with the wild type genotype are at a low risk.
