Deer DNA samples required for a new BDS CWD Research project

The BDS is engaging in a new research project to perform DNA typing of deer found in Britain to establish the extent of their susceptibility to CWD. This will assist with “modelling” how CWD might develop in the UK should it ever arrive.

We need some fresh samples of certain species before August 2017.
