Dog Genetics in Health and Disease - Adventures in Genomics

Added on Mar 2, 2016 From Illumina Inc

Dogs are our loyal companions who share our environment, food, and even some diseases. Yet, purebred dogs represent only a quarter of the approximately 1 billion dogs worldwide. Where do they come from, and how did they evolve from their wild wolf ancestors? Jacques and Irene visit Adam Boyko, whose team at Cornell University has collected genetic samples from village dogs in 38 countries. Surprisingly, village dogs did not originate from purebred dogs. Find out how these studies offer clues about ways dog genetics can be used to improve dog health and even human health.
