  1. Human-nonhuman chimeras: A regulatory proposal on the blurring of species lines

    Contributor(s):: Nicole E. Kopinski

    The chimera of modern biotechnology is defined broadly as a single organism composed of a mixture of materials from two or more organisms possessing distinct genetic backgrounds. Unlike the United States, which does not regulate chimeras directly, Canada has responded to the unregulated pursuit...

  13. Aggression in canine females

    Contributor(s):: Scott, John Paul

  14. Canine mental genetics

    Contributor(s):: Whitney, L. F.

    Certain behaviour patterns of the wolf are briefly examined and are likened to similar modified patterns in the domestic dog, thus implying acceptance of the theory that the dog's ancestor was the wolf. The author's earlier findings on characteristics peculiar to different breeds of sporting dog...

  15. Molecular investigation of relatedness of Campylobacter coli isolated from child with campylobacteriosis and healthy, household dog

    Contributor(s):: Wardak, S., Duda, U., Wojsa, B.

    Thermotolerant species of Campylobacter (mainly C. jejuni and C. coli) are among the most frequently isolated bacterial agents of gastroenteritis in many developed countries. C. coli is less prevalent than C. jejuni. The main reservoir of C. coli is swine, however this pathogen may also be found...

  16. Genetic control of dairy cattle behavior

    Contributor(s):: Schutz, M. M., Pajor, E. A.

    Past efforts to understand the genetics of behaviour in cattle, and livestock in general, have emphasized changes related to the domestication process. Especially in intensive systems, domestic cattle may not express the full range of innate behaviour when they are provided with food, shelter,...

  17. Genetics and animal domestication: new windows on an elusive process

    Contributor(s):: Dobney, K., Larson, G.

    Domesticated animals are universally familiar. How, when, where and why they became domesticated is less well understood. The genetic revolution of the past few decades has facilitated novel insights into a field that previously was principally the domain of archaeozoologists. Although some of...

  18. The effect of early separation from the mother on pups in bonding to humans and pup health

    Contributor(s):: Slabbert, J. M., Rasa, O. A. E.

    The separation of young dogs from their dams (n = 20) one litter from each bitch (n=55) at the age of 6 weeks had a negative effect on the physical condition and weight gain of separated pups compared with that of pups with maternal contact till 12 (n=40) weeks. Disease susceptibility and...

  19. Animal trait ontology: the importance and usefulness of a unified trait vocabulary for animal species

    Contributor(s):: Hughes, L. M., Bao, J., Hu, Z. L., Honavar, V., Reecy, J. M.

    Ontologies help to identify and formally define the entities and relationships in specific domains of interest. Bio-ontologies, in particular, play a central role in the annotation, integration, analysis, and interpretation of biological data. Missing from the number of bio-ontologies is one that...

  20. Science and society in dialogue about marker assisted selection

    Contributor(s):: Benard, M., Vriend, H. de, Haperen, P. van, Beekman, V.

    Analysis of a European Union funded biotechnology project on plant genomics and marker assisted selection in Solanaceous crops shows that the organization of a dialogue between science and society to accompany technological innovations in plant breeding faces practical challenges. Semi-structured...
