02589: Genetic Basis of Canine Spinal Abnormalities
Grant Status: Open
This study will identify potential genes and risk alleles to better understand the genetic basis of canine spinal abnormalities using comparisons between affected and unaffected dogs. The identification of these genes and risk alleles will advance knowledge with an ultimate goal to develop genetic tests and/or a genetic risk model to help predict healthy spines for good health in breeds with tightly curled tails such as Pugs, French Bulldogs, English Bulldogs, Boston Terriers and Basenjis.
