Single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) arrays can measure tens of thousands of SNP targets, where tandem repeat assays usually have several orders of magnitude fewer markers. This difference gives Applied Biosystems Axiom microarray results a much greater resolution and allows for verification of pedigrees and the genetic health of companion animals such as dogs, cats, and horses. The Axiom portfolio allows you to genotype entire animal populations, facilitating more tailored veterinary care and helping inform breeding efforts.

Doing Citizen Science with the Axiom Genotyping Solution

Doing citizen science with the Axiom Genotyping Solution

Hear how Dr. Karlsson, Assistant Professor at the University of Massachusetts Medical School, has successfully identified genes related to canine obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) in Doberman pinschers. Canine OCD is highly heritable, making it an ideal candidate for genomic research. Dr. Karlsson and her colleagues used gene arrays to compare Dobermans with and without OCD symptoms and identified a gene also implicated in human OCD whose protein product stabilizes connections between glutaminergic neurons.

Advanced Genetic Sequencing Tools for Canine Research

Advanced genetic tools for canine research

Canine research is an important part of many research and testing laboratories, as dogs are particularly well-suited to addressing certain questions relevant to human diseases and behavioral patterns.

Dogs have extremely high phenotypic plasticity compared to other mammals, leading to huge differences in size, behavior, body shape, and disease susceptibility between breeds. This diversity makes them ideal subjects for research surrounding the genetic bases of various skeletal and muscular conditions. Dogs have also been bred for thousands of years to respond to human social cues, making them useful for research into the genetic underpinnings of behavior. Additionally, canine diets are similar enough to human diets that dogs provide insight into dietary and metabolic conditions that other lab animals cannot.
