Study & Survey generatio

Survey info

To explore genetic predisposition, symptoms, and environmental (feeding, exercise, handling) factors, generatio ran a large-scale scientific survey, gathering data on horses that had been tested for the MIM (“PSSM2”) variants.  Owners who had tested their horses were invited to complete the survey of 174 questions.  The collection of data has now closed.

Statistical analyses are now being performed to identify correlations between different variants/variant combinations, symptoms, responses to management changes, etc.  The analyses will form the basis for a scientific publication based on this large-scale testing data. 

We thank all respondents for their time and effort in participating in this important research project.
