    Default Latest on EIC.

    The defective gene responsible for EIC has been identified. The University of Minnesota hopes a DNA based test will be available within the year.

    Good on 'em.

    Apparently when the test becomes available, details will be posted on the Comparative Neuromuscular Laboratory Site.

    It would be nice if the mode of inheritance is such that effected dogs can be eliminated without too much further narrowing of the gene pool.
