Chromosome Map and Breed Groups
Let Their Genome Do the Talking
Does your cat have more in common with the Western Maine Coon or the Eastern Burmese? Using our world-class database of feline genetics, Basepaws can estimate your tabby’s origins to more than 20 breed types and 4 breed regions. IMPORTANT NOTE - this is NOT a breed identifier (we can not confirm your cat’s pedigree). We report the breed composition of your cat by looking for genomic similarities to specific breeds.
Feline Health Markers
A Healthy Cat is a Happy Cat
Your cat’s DNA is able to say so many of the things that they can’t. Using the latest science we can show if your cat has any health risks in their genes. We have manually curated health markers for every sample we have sequenced and can recognize 39+ markers representing 17 genetic diseases including:
- Polycystic Kidney Disease (PKD)
- Hypertrophic cardiomyopathy (HCM)
- Retinal degeneration
Your Cat’s Wild Side
You’ll find out if your cat shares more DNA with a Tiger or a Cheetah or maybe even a Lion when we compare your cat’s DNA with the common big cat species, within our database. It may explain your kitten’s roar-like meow.
Science Waits for No Cat
When you join Basepaws, you are joining a community that is constantly evolving. Our database grows larger on a daily basis, so when we have updates for your cat’s report, you'll have them too.
