Kære opdrættere i DBSK,
Antagene har nu offentliggjort et avlsværktøj for jer der har SH-testet jeres hunde. Avlsværktøjet giver adgang til, at der kan laves prøveparringer mellem hunde der er testet og få en teoretisk beregning af SH-indekset for det påtænkte kuld.
Avls og Sundhedsudvalget i DBSK anbefaler alle, der har testet deres hunde, til at gå ind på ”Min konto” på Antagenes hjemmeside og aktivere deres hunde.
Har du en hund du påtænker at bringe ind i avlen, så få din hund testet og gør den aktiv i HSIMS- værktøjet hos Antagene.

Antagene skriver:
“Several month ago, ANTAGENE laboratory have ask you for funds to develop a new tool: the HSIMS tool.
Today, I am very pleased to inform you that this HSIMS tool is now available.
Indeed, every Bernese Mountain dog owner can now log in to his ANTAGENE account (https://client.antagene.com/) and use this free of charge world-wide tool for breeding decisions.
As a reminder, thanks to a three-way collaboration between CNRS, Antagene and the French Association of the Swiss Mountain Dog (AFBS) in 2012, a genetic risk test was developed to reduce the Histiocytic Sarcoma’s impact on the breed: the SH test.
HSIMS (Histiocytic Sarcoma Index Mate Selection) is a tool for the mating selection regarding the SH index of the parents. It calculates, for the next generation, in percentages, the distribution of A, B and C indexes for a specific mating, considering all the SH genotypes possible in the next generation.

HSIMS tool allows the user to:
– select the matings that would statistically produce the best indexes
– choose the best partner for one stud-dog
– find the best mating for its Bernese Mountain Dog with a C index
– avoid “risky” matings
