Sequencing the dog genome

Sequencing the dog genome

The Science Show, ABC Radio National, 21 January, 2006

Tasha, a rusty coloured boxer with large brown eyes and a snowy white chest made history last year by being the first dog to have her genome completely sequenced. There wasn’t as much hype surrounding the publication of the dog genome as the human one, but the potential implications of the work are possibly greater, for both dog breeders and humans.
