Basepaws’ project to improve the feline reference genome

A reference genome is a database assembled based on whole genome sequencing data from multiple members of a species of interest. This genome assembly is considered as a representative example of the genome organization of a typical member of the species. For an organism to be effectively studied from a genetics perspective, having a high quality reference genome is a must.

Big News: Now Only 4-6 Weeks From Sample to Report!

At Basepaws, we have a cause for celebration - from June 15th, we are officially making our health and breed report generation timeline 4-6 weeks. This means you will now be able to get your cat’s report 4-6 weeks after their sample reaches our lab. We are very excited to be able to offer this timeline to our customers, as it constitutes a substantial improvement over our previous timeline of 6-9 weeks.
