Researchers will assess the prevalence of hybrid elephants (naturally interbred African forest and savanna elephants) and how their health compares to their parental species.
Researchers will attempt to identify genetic mutations associated with perianal fistula (painful lesions in the skin and deeper tissue around the anal area of dogs) in two high-risk breeds – German shepherd and Leonberger dogs.
This study will improve the alpaca whole genome sequence assembly for the discovery of genes and mutations responsible for important traits, genetic disorders and diseases in alpacas and other camelids.
Researchers will look for genetic variants associated with the orthopedic disease osteochondrosis as a first step to developing a risk assessment model for horses.
Researchers will study gut microbiome variation as it relates to the health and wellness of a well-studied group of feral horses living on Sable Island, Canada.
Researchers will study the complex issue of genetic diversity when bringing a species back from the brink of extinction, using genetic data from the critically endangered Pacific pocket mouse.
