DNA Bank versus JRT Health Registry

  • by

Did you know that submitting DNA to the bank and submitting tests to the Jack Russell Terrier Health Registry are two very different things?

The DNA Bank is where the actual blood is kept and used both to help researchers isolate the genetic mutations as well as to actually perform the tests you order.

The JRT Health Registry is a resource that houses test results submitted by terrier owners.

The DNA bank has a physical location with the University of Missouri and the Health Registry is an online database.

If you have questions about this, please message any one of the Board members. Your JRTRF Board of Directors are Debbie Johnson, Erin Schwartzkopf, Dawn Weiss – Kelley, and Cheryl Costello.
