U.C. Davies now offers a test for the Leopard Complex allele.
The official Leopard Complex test is now available for $25 from UC Davis. A paper detailing the causative mutation is expected in the near future. Congratulations to Sheila Archer, Dr. Rebecca Bellone and the Appaloosa Project on the discovery!
For more information on Leopard Complex, including some older posts that explain how it works together with patterning genes to produce the variety of appaloosa coat patterns, can be found by clicking on “Appaloosa” under the Categories menu to the right of this page.
