A new journal dedicated to dog genetics and epidemiology, announced last year, is now online.
The great news is that Canine Genetics and Epidemiology is free and promises to interpret the reports for dog breeders and others without a science background.
Thus, in the first issue in a very useful article on The Genetics of Eye Disorders in the Dog by Cathryn Mellersh, we have this abstract:
And then the journal helpfully offers this lay summary.
Actually, the journal is a great initiative and deserves everyone's support.
Also in the first issue:
• "Approaches to canine health surveillance" (Dan O'Neill et al), which explores the strengths and weaknesses of different ways to monitor disease in dogs.
• "A novel mutation in TTC8 is associated with progressive retinal atrophy in the golden retriever" (Louise Downs et al), which reports another mutation linked to PRA in Goldies.
Canine Genetics and Epidemiology is published with support and backing from the Kennel Club. An excellent use of KC funds/resources.
