Research in our group focuses on the canine genetic research. In the past few years, the dog's genome has been sequenced, which has opened up tremendous possibilities for uncovering the genetic background of the hereditary diseases and behavioral characteristics, as well as traits such as build, coat color and size of different dog breeds. The unique population history and breed structure of dogs make them great candidates for genetic research.
