Abstract

The dog, as human's favored companion, is unique among animal species in providing new insights into human genetic disease. In this review, we will discuss both the breed and the population structure of dogs and why that makes canines amenable to genetic studies. We will review the current state of the map and discuss the particular disease states in which canines stand to make the greatest contribution to medical genetics.
