The dog, Canis lupus familiaris, is a useful model organism for medical research due to extensive genetic diversity and morphological variation within the species and to aggressive breeding practices that have resulted in inbred populations of dogs. Many breeds of dog are particularly susceptible to inherited diseases that are also common in More...
