Under this partnership, Paw Print Genetics will be offering testing for this disease and providing Auburn University statistics regarding this disorder on samples collected in the Paw Print Genetics laboratory. This agreement avoids any potential dispute between Paw Print Genetics and Auburn University concerning the validity of the ’232 patent.
