Cover for Molecular genetics of coat colour, texture and length in the dog.

The genetics of coat variation is a powerful system for studying the fundamental aspects of gene action and the evolutionary mechanisms that give rise to morphological diversity. The domestic dog is an ideal platform for this approach due to the variety of coat colours, textures and patterns...

Cover for Canine immunogenetics.

Access to genome sequences has rapidly driven studies into canine cytokines/chemokines and their receptors. An extensive number of canine cytokine/chemokine genes have now been characterized, and the level of polymorphism seen across breeds is now being established. It is likely that such studies...
