About This Project
Sheep come in a variety of different patterns and colors, with black or white individuals being the most common. Brown is another rarer option, often called Moorit. There are no genetic tests currently available for shepherds to identify moorit carriers. Our project aims to identify the genetic variants responsible for moorit in sheep using a candidate gene sequencing approach. Discovering the genetic basis for moorit will allow shepherds to make more informed breeding decisions in their flocks.
