For inclusion in the "All Breed" studies at NHGRI, we need to collect at least 12 unrelated individuals from each breed. Breeds listed with * after the name are needed for additional studies into specific diseases or breed characteristics and may require 20-50 individuals from each breed. Because these studies involve extensive experimental data collection we are requesting blood samples from all breeds.
