We review the underlying principles and tools used in genomic studies of domestic dogs aimed at understanding the genetic changes that have occurred during domestication. We show that there are two principle modes of evolution within dogs. One primary mode that accounts for much of the remarkable diversity of dog breeds is the fixation of discrete mutations of large effect in individual lineages that are then crossed to various breed groupings. This transfer of mutations across the dog… 
Establishing the validity of domestication genes using DNA from ancient chickens
TLDR
Estimating genetic variability in ancient European chickens over the past 2,000 years shows that a mutation thought to be crucial during chicken domestication was not subjected to strong human-mediated selection until much later in time, demonstrating that the ubiquity of mutations does not necessarily imply ancient origins.
So many doggone traits: mapping genetics of multiple phenotypes in the domestic dog.
TLDR
In this review, recent work on the genetics of body size, leg length and skull shape is summarized, while setting the stage for tackling other traits.
Evolutionary History, Selective Sweeps, and Deleterious Variation in the Dog
TLDR
In this review, genetic findings from genome-wide and complete genome studies that document the genomic consequences of demography and selection, including the effects on adaptive and deleterious variation are summarized and synthesized.
Genetics of Domesticated Behavior in Dogs and Foxes
TLDR
Identification of behavioral loci in the fox genome in the region which is homologous to the region in the dog genome that differentiates dogs from wolves lead to the hypothesis that domesticated behavior in dogs and foxes may have similar genetic bases.
Bottlenecks and selective sweeps during domestication have increased deleterious genetic variation in dogs
TLDR
These results provide the first quantitative estimates of the increased burden of deleterious variants directly associated with domestication and have important implications for selective breeding programs and the conservation of rare and endangered species.
Dog10K: an international sequencing effort to advance studies of canine domestication, phenotypes and health
TLDR
The Dog10K Consortium is an international collaboration of researchers from across the globe who will generate 20× whole genomes from 10 000 canids in 5 years, which will capture the genetic diversity that underlies the phenotypic and geographical variability of modern canids worldwide.
Analysis of structural diversity in wolf-like canids reveals post-domestication variants
TLDR
The authors' results provide insight into the evolution of structural variation in canines, where recombination is not regulated by PRDM9 due to the inactivation of this gene, and genes within the most differentiated CNV regions between dogs and wolves, which could reflect selection during the domestication process.
Commonalities in Development of Pure Breeds and Population Isolates Revealed in the Genome of the Sardinian Fonni's Dog
TLDR
It is described how characteristics of population isolates are reflected in dog breeds that have undergone artificial selection, and are mirrored in the Fonni’s Dog through traditional isolating factors that affect human populations.
Variation in breeding practices and geographic isolation drive subpopulation differentiation, contributing to the loss of genetic diversity within dog breed lineages
TLDR
It is shown that both geographical differentiation caused by founder effect and lack of gene flow, and selection on champion looks or restricted pedigrees is a strong driver of population fragmentation can contribute to breed division, with subsequent loss of genetic variation in the resulting breed lineages.
The concerted impact of domestication and transposon insertions on methylation patterns between dogs and grey wolves
TLDR
Analysis of methylation differences from >24 000 cytosines distributed across the genomes of the domesticated dog and the grey wolf suggest selection has acted on methylation patterns, providing a new genomic perspective on phenotypic diversification in domesticated species.

Genome-wide SNP and haplotype analyses reveal a rich history underlying dog domestication
TLDR
It is shown that dog breeds share a higher proportion of multi-locus haplotypes unique to grey wolves from the Middle East, indicating that they are a dominant source of genetic diversity for dogs rather than wolves from east Asia, as suggested by mitochondrial DNA sequence data.
The canine genome.
TLDR
It is suggested that given these resources and the unique characteristics of breeds, that the dog is a uniquely valuable resource for studying the genetic basis of complex traits.
Canine Genomics and Genetics: Running with the Pack
TLDR
This review discusses the advances in mapping and sequencing that accelerated the field in recent years, then highlights findings of interest related to disease gene mapping and population structure, and summarizes novel results on the genetics of morphologic variation.
Genome sequence, comparative analysis and haplotype structure of the domestic dog
TLDR
A high-quality draft genome sequence of the domestic dog is reported, together with a dense map of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) across breeds, to shed light on the structure and evolution of genomes and genes.
Leading the way: canine models of genomics and disease
TLDR
This review highlights the unique features of the dog, such as population diversity and breed structure, that make it particularly amenable to genetic studies, and discusses two approaches for localizing disease genes in the dog.

TLDR
A genome-wide scan for selection in 275 dogs from 10 phenotypically diverse breeds that were genotyped for over 21,000 autosomal SNPs is described and 155 genomic regions that possess strong signatures of recent selection and contain candidate genes for phenotypes that vary most conspicuously among breeds are identified.
A genome-wide perspective on the evolutionary history of enigmatic wolf-like canids.
TLDR
It is found that these enigmatic canids are highly admixed varieties derived from gray wolves and coyotes, respectively, and divergent genomic history suggests that they do not have a shared recent ancestry as proposed by previous researchers.
Genes of domestic mammals augmented by backcrossing with wild ancestors.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the numerous MHC DRB alleles that are present in modern domestic mammals implies that substantial backcrossing with wild ancestors, either accidental or intentional, has been important in shaping the genetic diversity of the authors' domesticates.
Localization of Canine Brachycephaly Using an Across Breed Mapping Approach
TLDR
Across breed mapping approach using a moderately dense SNP array, a low number of animals and breeds carefully selected for the phenotypes of interest to identify genetic variants responsible for breed-defining characteristics demonstrates that non-segregating traits under strong selection are equally tractable to genetic analysis using small sample numbers.
Lessons learned from the dog genome.
TLDR
The dog is finally emerging as a novel resource for studying the genetic basis of complex traits, including behavior, according to genome-wide association and selective sweep scans.
