What is Whole Genome Sequencing?Updated 4 months ago

High-depth whole-genome sequencing (WGS) is the most comprehensive method of genome analysis, yielding 10,000 times more raw data than other DNA tests.

This test provides cat owners with a standard Breed + Health DNA Report, an Oral Health Report, and a USB drive containing your cat's raw data.

It'll take 4-6 weeks to post your cat's report to your online account, and another 1-3 weeks to finalize the USB drive; therefore, it should take no more than 9 weeks with a high-quality DNA sample. (Please see our Help Center section called "DNA sample collection" for tips on swabbing).
