Learn how to predict potential litter genetic health risks and coat color genotypes with Dr. Adam Boyko.
How can I use Punnett squares to predict litter outcomes?
Knowing the genotypes of two dogs that might be bred can provide you with a wealth of information. In this video, Embark’s Chief Science Officer explains how to create Punnett squares and use them to determine the statistical probability of producing clear, carrier, and/or at-risk puppies from the mating of two dogs regardless of MOI of the variant as well as expected coat colors.
