Dog

The dog is a useful model organism for medical research due to extensive genetic diversity and morphological variation within the species. Many breeds of dog are particularly susceptible to inherited diseases that are also common in humans, such as cancer, heart disease, rheumatoid arthritis, autoimmune disorders, deafness, and blindness.More...

Although the bonobo, or pygmy chimpanzee, Pan paniscus and common chimpanzee Pan troglodytes are morphologically similar, studies have found that more than three per cent of the human genome is more closely related to either the bonobo or the chimpanzee genome than these are to each other.More...
