This website is to keep lovebird breeders all over the world informed of the progress of the Agapornis genome study.
The study is part of a PhD degree that looks at the genetic make-up of lovebirds. We are focusing on roseicollis species only, but hope to expand to other species later on.
We aim to develop at least two tests for breeders. The first is a parentage verification test and the second a size test.
We also hope to develop a test to determine if a young is a split for a specific color mutation, even before it is sold. This will, however, be in a later stage of the study.
