Project Summary

This project sought to identify candidate genes for specific diseases in dogs. Candidate genes are genes known to cause specific diseases in other species. The researchers searched for canine equivalents of three human chromosomes. They identified more than 25 Type I markers (markers that are associated with specific genes). These markers, mapped on the canine genome linkage map, provide valuable information to other scientists looking for the genes causing various heritable diseases in dogs.
