Felis catus, the domestic cat, provides several valuable models for infectious disease, including a model for human AIDS. With a large number of recognized breeds, the cat is also a valuable resource for studying phenotypic diversity and evolution. The cat genome will further facilitate research in human medicine as some rare diseases that occur More...
