In this edition of Genome Barks we hear from Dr. Snaevar Sigurdsson of the Broad Institute who discusses his research of genetic risk factors for osteosarcoma. Dr. Sigurdsson and his team are specifically looking at the Greyhound and other large breed dogs that have a higher incidence of osteosarcoma. After completing a genome-wide scan of the Greyhound, Dr. Sigurdsson and his team are now looking at the possibility of a tumor suppressive gene that may aid in better diagnosis and provide breeders with key genetic information.
