mtDNA and Tregonwell's Natural Barb

mtDNA and Tregonwell's Natural Barb

A year or so ago another company that I am associated with, Performance Genetics, did a private study on mitochondrial DNA, the strand of DNA that is maternally inherited in all species and can be used to classify female lineages. We were specifically looking into the #1 family of Tregonwell's Natural Barb which is now that of the likes of Black Caviar, Super Saver and Frankel. I wrote up our findings for the Australian bloodstock magazine BlueBloods but we thought it would be something of interest to our TrueNicks community.
