Embark uses a research grade, CLIA-certified SNP chip that identifies breed, ancestry, genetic disease risks and other traits, like coat and color, with a simple cheek swab.

Our panel screens 113 AKC-recognized breeds for all diseases (over 160+) for which genetic screens are recommended. 

After careful & detailed analysis, our scientists prepare your results, delivered to you via your online profile.

Our lab is partnered with the Cornell University College of Veterinary Medicine and is operated by a highly skilled team of canine and veterinary geneticists.

QUALITY ASSURED

Our Chief Science Officer, Dr. Adam Boyko, has coauthored more than 40 peer-reviewed scientific papers (published in Nature and Science). His lab discovered genetic markers for body size, hip and elbow dysplasia, granulomatous colitis, and mast cell tumors. These findings inform features like our state of the art "genetic weight" algorithms, and pushes ever further into the field of personalized genomics for your dog.

 Breeding Coefficent: One of our Advanced Tab features.

Ensure every litter is as healthy as possible with Embark. We test for most or all testable genetic health conditions in nearly every breed. We test all dogs on our entire marker set so you don't have to choose which breed-specific health and trait tests to buy. It also allows us to work with breeders and breed clubs to discover the genetic mutations behind currently untestable diseases.

LEARN MORE ABOUT COI

Coefficient of Inbreeding (COI) is a measure of how genetically similar a dog’s parents are. From a genetic point of view, this translates to what percentage of the genome is identical on both its maternal and paternal strands (also known as homozygosity).
