International Society for Animal Genetics (ISAG) Certificates

The International Society for Animal Genetics (ISAG) is a professional society that provides a platform for scientists to exchange ideas on animal genetics research and the applications of the findings. ISAG member institutions can participate in biannual comparison testing, which provides a means to compare and standardize results for genetic tests, particularly parentage tests. An absolute genotyping accuracy rank of 1 is the top ranking participants can achieve, and some organizations require this ranking to accept testing results.
