In seven European countries (Cyprus, France, Greece, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, United Kingdom) the frequencies of PrP polymorphisms have been tested in over 6000 goats, from a number of breeds.

The data of this work were collected by six of the eight GoatBSE-project partners and are available as deliverable D1-2.

In the EMIDA-project (1sep2012-31dec2015) more work has been carried out to locate live carriers of interesting polymorphisms for TSE-resistance breeding in the following countries:  France, Germany, Greece, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, and the United Kingdom.
