How to sample DNA

The process of gaining knowledge from beef genomics begins with a DNA sample. DNA can be collected at any time in the life of the animal, and the sooner you sample, the earlier you can make use of the information revealed in the DNA. The following types of samples are indicated for tests offered and types of animals involved.
