Osteosarcoma Research Update

02/20/2014

In this podcast we hear from Dr. Kerstin Lindblad-Toh and Dr. Elinor Karlsson, two of our most prominent oncology genetics researchers. Dr. Lindblad-Toh is a professor in comparative genomics at Uppsala University and the Scientific Director of Vertebrate Genome Biology at the Broad Institute. Dr. Karlsson is a postdoctoral fellow at Harvard University and was recently awarded the Charles A. King Trust Postdoctoral Fellowship.

In this podcast we learn about the research that is refining the genes and gene signatures associated with osteosarcoma and how this may lead to better treatments. Initial findings have been published in the open access journal Genome Biology, entitled "Genome-wide analyses implicate 33 loci in heritable dog osteosarcoma, including regulatory variants near CDKN2A/B."

Baby Noses: Introducing Scents to Neonate Puppies

01/09/2014

Our presenter for this webinar is Dr. Gayle Watkins. Gayle has been breeding Golden Retrievers and competing in a wide array of dog events--conformation, agility, obedience, tracking, hunt tests and field trials--for nearly 30 years.

During these decades, she has produced, owned and/or shown over 50 American and Canadian conformation, obedience, agility, tracking and rally champions, as well as Master Hunter and Qualified All-Age field trial Goldens.

Gayle’s focus is on using science in her puppy rearing to produce healthy, stable, talented dogs. She brings her background as an Army officer, scientist, researcher, business owner and consultant to this goal. Most recently, she and two of her co-breeders started Avidog International to share these methods with other breeders and puppy owners. In this webinar, we are going to hear about one of the programs that they have been using in the breeding program for nearly a decade.
