  1. Can biomarkers of biological age be used to assess cumulative lifetime experience?

    Contributor(s):: Bateson, M., Poirier, C.

  2. Genetic and behavioral characteristics of the St. Kitts 'island dog'

    Contributor(s):: Grigg, Emma K., Nibblett, Belle M., Sacks, Benjamin N., Hack, Rachel, Serpell, James A., Hart, Lynette

    Recent studies of the ancient and indigenous dog breeds, while informing us about the origins of the domestic dog and the process of domestication, can also aid in understanding the behavior of modern-day dogs. Genetic signatures of indigenous American dog origins may be present on the Caribbean...

  3. Homozygosity for Mobile Element Insertions Associated with WBSCR17 Could Predict Success in Assistance Dog Training Programs

    Contributor(s):: Tandon, D., Ressler, K., Petticord, D., Papa, A., Jiranek, J., Wilkinson, R., Kartzinel, R. Y., Ostrander, E. A., Burney, N., Borden, C., Udell, M. A. R., VonHoldt, B. M.

  4. 17q12-21 and asthma: interactions with early-life environmental exposures

    Contributor(s):: Blekic, M., Kljaic Bukvic, B., Aberle, N., Marinho, S., Hankinson, J., Custovic, A., Simpson, A.

  5. Phenotyping mouse chromosome substitution strains reveal multiple QTLs for febrile seizure susceptibility

    | Contributor(s):: Hessel, E. V. S., van Gassen, K. L. I., Wolterink-Donselaar, I. G., Stienen, P. J., Fernandes, C., Brakkee, J. H., Kas, M. J. H., de Graan, P. N. E.

    Febrile seizures (FS) are the most common seizure type in children and recurrent FS are a risk factor for developing temporal lobe epilepsy. Although the mechanisms underlying FS are largely unknown, recent family, twin and animal studies indicate that genetics are important in FS...

  6. Domestication, selection, behaviour and welfare of animals - genetic mechanisms for rapid responses

    | Contributor(s):: Jensen, P.

    Increased production has been the major goal of animal breeding for many decades, and the correlated side-effects have grown to become a major issue in animal welfare. In this paper, the main genetic mechanisms in which such side-effects may occur are reviewed with examples from our own research...

  7. Reducing the number of animals used in behavioural genetic experiments using chromosome substitution strains

    | Contributor(s):: Laarakker, M. C., Ohl, F., Lith, H. A. van

    Chromosome substitution strains (also called consomic lines or strains) are strains in which a single, full-length chromosome from one inbred strain - the donor strain - has been transferred onto the genetic background of a second inbred strain - the host strain. Based on the results obtained...
