Recognizing the significant advances made in the field of animal genetics in the ten years since the first edition of "Genetics of the Dog", this new edition of the successful 2001 book provides a comprehensive update on the subject, along with new material on topics of current and growing interest. Existing chapters on essential topics such as immunogenetics, genetics of diseases, developmental genetics and the genetics of behaviour have been fully updated, while new authors report on the latest advances in areas such as genetic diversity of dog breeds, canine genomics, olfactory genetics and cancer genetics.
Review of the first edition:
"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."
