The Process for Collecting Data for DNA Research
If you have a Forest Cat that has been diagnosed positive for HCM by a certified Cardiologist, please follow the guidelines below. By participating in the study you will be helping Dr. Meurs' research to identify the mutation in the gene responsible for causing HCM in the NFC. The more cats we have for the study will result in more consistent and accurate data.
This process is in the beginning stages and as we receive feedback from Dr Meurs, we'll be adding steps that you'll need to follow to this page.
*Please note that if you need help with emailing results to Dr Meurs, please feel free to send an email to Melissa for assistance.
