NHGRI researchers provide insights on the genetics of dog skull variation

Breeding has fostered remarkable craniofacial diversity in the domestic dog - from the Collie's elongated snout to the compressed face of the Pug. Study of dog skull variation conducted at NHGRI's Cancer Genetics Branch (CGB) is leading to explorations of both canine, and human skull biology and genetics. Elaine A. Ostrander, Ph.D., chief of NHGRI's Cancer Genetics Branch (CGB), and Jeffrey J. Schoenebeck, Ph.D., CGB research fellow, review the biology and genetics of canine skull formation in an article appearing the February issue of Genetics. Read more
