Wondering if there is any update (or when one might be available) on my dog Cali’s sample. According to my personalized feedback page, her DNA kit was received for extraction with UMass back in 2016 when I initially sent it in, then said sample being processed at VHL in 2017, and now again it says DNA kit received for extraction with Broad Institute as of January 2038 (???) which I assume should say 2018. The barcode # is 31001602110487. Please advise on the status. Thank you! -Lauren

Thank you for bringing up the 2038 issue! That was our mistake, and will fix it ASAP.
As for the samples, you will see on our other forum posts, that we are facing grant issues and can only send about 300-500 samples when we can (we are making Darwin's Dogs into a non-profit in the near future so participants can donate to speed up the process if they want too). I have checked the upcoming batch of samples to be sent out for sequencing, and your dog Cali's sample will be going out in the next month! Once samples are physically sent out, your statues will change again so you can see where it goes.
