What is the archive?

The archive is a confidential storage facility for Glen DNA swabs, along with supporting pedigree and health information, for use in future health research projects.

All you need to do to support this important health initiative, is send off five buccal (cheek) swabs from your Glen, plus a copy of your Glen’s pedigree and the submission form to the Kennel Club Genetics Centre (KCGC) at Cambridge University.

Contributions to the archive are welcomed from non-UK resident Glens, as well as those resident in the UK ... from Glens of all ages and health status.
