This comprehensive reference book contains the latest research and information on dog genetics. Its coverage of all aspects makes it an essential tool for those working and researching in this subject area, including professional dog breeding.
"Ruvinsky (animal science, U. of New England, Armidale, Australia) and Sampson (Kennel Club, London) remind us that no other species has such a long association with humans and demonstrates such genetic variation as Canis familiaris. These 19 papers, reflecting progress in the last decade in mammalian genetics driven by the genomic and biotechnological revolutions, represent all major directions in dog genetics. Contributions present up-to-date thinking on such topics as the origin of the domestic dog; consequences of domestication; biochemical and molecular genetics; the genetics of canine hip dysplasia, diseases, and behavior; pedigree analysis; the canine model in medical genetics; and dog genetic data as forensic evidence."--SciTech Book News
