Dog Genome Information - Dog CanFam3.1 Assembly


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.

Lineage: Eukaryota; Metazoa; Chordata; Craniata; Vertebrata; Euteleostomi; Mammalia; Eutheria; Laurasiatheria; Carnivora; Caniformia; Canidae; Canis; Canis lupus; Canis lupus familiaris.
