Basepaws Cat DNA Report: Which Breeds Does It Include?

Basepaws Cat DNA Report: Which Breeds Does It Include?

Since the launch, the Basepaws team has been striving to create one of the largest databases of feline genetic and physical information in an effort to improve feline health and learn more about the genetic basis of cat breeds. Below you can find the complete list of breeds currently included in the breed index of the Basepaws Cat DNA Report.

The breed groups included in our report are now broken down into 3 categories: Western Breeds (from Europe/Americas), Eastern Breeds (from Asia), and Hybrid Breeds (from wild-domestic crosses). Your cat will more dominantly belong to ONE of these groups. Within the dominant breed group, we rank the breeds in the order of genetic similarity to your cat - the first breed being the one your kitty is MOST similar to of ALL the included breeds.

Currently, the report includes the following breeds:

Western Breeds:

1. American Shorthair

2. Abyssinian

3. British Shorthair

4. Maine Coon

5. Norwegian Forest Cat

6. Persian

7. Ragdoll

8. Russian Blue

9. Siberian Forest Cat

10. Turkish Angora

Eastern Breeds:

1. Burmese

2. Birman

3. Siamese

4. Oriental Shorthair

Hybrids:

1. Bengal (Asian leopard x domestic)

2. Savannah (serval x domestic)

In the near future, as our database expands, we will be adding more breeds to the report. As the existing breed genetic profiles are constantly being refined, the similarity percentages for each breed you see now may slightly shift with each update we release. To the excitement of the whole Basepaws team, we are currently collecting and refining the genetic markers for some of the most prevalent feline genetic diseases. This will enable us to screen for potential health problems your cat may be predisposed to and present them to you in the health section of your report.
