Last quote by Elaine Ostrander

All these breeds are members of the same species. They all have their chromosomes organized the same way – same genes, same order. It's very subtle variation in small numbers of genes that account for that very large difference in morphology that we see across breeds. We have a yellow brick road for figuring out how mutations move around the dog world. We recognize that everything humans get, dogs get – epilepsy, cancer, diabetes, heart disease. We can actually trace diseases as they move around the dog breed population.feedback

The most recent quote attributed to Elaine Ostrander came from an article called Gene Researchers Map Out Dog Family Tree: “Cute is a big one. Every morning someone comes in who's been to a dog show or a Frisbee contest or a specialty event – we go to all of these because that's where we get our dog DNA samples. Everyone comes in Monday with a picture and they've seen the cutest dot dot dot. If we see a breed that we haven't had a good sample of to sequence, we definitely make a beeline for that owner and say, Gosh, we don't have the sequence of the Otterhound yet and your dog is a beautiful Otterhound. Wouldn't you like it to represent your breed in the dog genome sequence database?”.
