We used molecular markers to study genetic relationships in a diverse collection of 85 domestic dog breeds. Differences among breeds accounted for ∼30% of genetic variation. Microsatellite genotypes were used to correctly assign 99% of individual dogs to breeds. Phylogenetic analysis separated several breeds with ancient origins from the remaining breeds with modern European origins. We identified four genetic clusters, which predominantly contained breeds with similar geographic origin… 
Genetic diversity of dog breeds: between-breed diversity, breed assignation and conservation approaches.
TLDR
Genetic relationships between 61 dog breeds were investigated, using a sampling of 1514 animals and a panel of 21 microsatellite markers, and breed constituted the main genetic structure, while groups including genetically close breeds showed a very weak structure.
Molecular structure in peripheral dog breeds: Portuguese native breeds as a case study.
TLDR
Although the level of breed differentiation detected is below that of other dog breeds, there is in most cases a correlation between breed affiliation and molecular structure, and a geographical genetic structure was detected, which suggests a limited influence of African dogs on the Iberian breeds.
Y chromosome haplotype analysis in purebred dogs
TLDR
A network analysis of the haplotypes revealed further relationships between the breeds as well as deep rooting of many of the breed-specific haplotypes, particularly among breeds of African origin.
Genetic variability of seven dog breeds based on microsatellite markers.
TLDR
Compared the genetic variability of seven dog breeds and a test sample from Switzerland by means of 26 microsatellite markers, a Bayesian approach for clustering and a Monte Carlo re-sampling method for individual assignment or exclusion to a given population was confirmed.
Origins of the Domestic Dog and the Rich Potential for Gene Mapping
TLDR
Research into causes of diseases in dogs is relevant to humans and other species; comparative genomics is being used to transfer genetic information to them, including some studies on morphological and behavioral phenotypes.
Comparative population genetics of the German shepherd dog in South Africa
TLDR
Non-significant population differentiation between the ancestral German and derived South African populations indicates sufficient contemporary gene flow between these populations, suggesting that migration resulting from the importation of breeding stock has mitigated the effects of random genetic drift and a population bottleneck caused by the original founder event in South Africa.
Genetic characterization of Czech local rabbit breeds using microsatellite analysis
TLDR
The conserved rabbit breeds can serve as a reservoir of genetic variants for future breeding despite small living populations and show high level of diversity, as expressed by polymorphism information content of the markers and allelic richness.
Evolutionary genomics of dog domestication
TLDR
How a black coat color mutation that evolved in dogs has transformed North American gray wolf populations, providing a first example of a mutation that appeared under domestication and selectively swept through a wild relative is discussed.
Genetic characterization of four native Italian shepherd dog breeds and analysis of their relationship to cosmopolitan dog breeds using microsatellite markers.
TLDR
The native Italian breeds showed generally higher genetic diversity compared with the long established, well-defined cosmopolitan dog breeds and a possible utilization of this breed to improve working performance in Italian traditional working shepherd dogs cannot be ignored.
Genetic diversity of dog breeds: within-breed diversity comparing genealogical and molecular data.
TLDR
It was concluded that special efforts should be made to maintain diversity for three breeds, namely the Berger des Pyrénées, Braque Saint-Germain and Bull Terrier.

Analysis of genetic variation in 28 dog breed populations with 100 microsatellite markers.
TLDR
Assessing the genotypic variation within and across 28 breeds representing the seven recognized breed groups of the American Kennel Club (AKC) to elucidate phylogeny and genetic distances between breeds shows more accurate determination of breed phylogeny will likely require the use of single-nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs).
Genetic diversity of 11 European pig breeds
TLDR
This study indicates that using genetic distances between breeds of farm animals in a classical taxonomic approach may not give clear resolution, but points to their usefulness in a prospective evaluation of diversity.
Genetic structure of seven European cattle breeds assessed using 20 microsatellite markers.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that a simple allele-sharing genetic distance parameter can be used to construct a dendrogram of relationships among animals and reflects an extensive underlying kinship structure, particularly for the Swiss Simmental breed and four breeds originating from the British Isles.
Genetic diversity of eleven European pig breeds
TLDR
This study indicates that using genetic distances between breeds of farm animals in a classical taxonomic approach may not give clear resolution, but points to their usefulness in a prospective evaluation of diversity.
Multiple and ancient origins of the domestic dog.
TLDR
Sequences from both dogs and wolves showed considerable diversity and supported the hypothesis that wolves were the ancestors of dogs, suggesting that dogs originated more than 100,000 years before the present.
Genetic Evidence for an East Asian Origin of Domestic Dogs
TLDR
A larger genetic variation in East Asia than in other regions and the pattern of phylogeographic variation suggest an East Asian origin for the domestic dog, ∼15,000 years ago.
Genetic Structure of Human Populations
TLDR
General agreement of genetic and predefined populations suggests that self-reported ancestry can facilitate assessments of epidemiological risks but does not obviate the need to use genetic information in genetic association studies.
Individual assignment using microsatellite DNA reveals unambiguous breed identification in the domestic dog.
TLDR
This study explores the efficiency of the clustering methods in identifying the breeds of origin of 250 domestic dog individuals based on 10 microsatellite loci and refutes the traditional view that DNA based dog breed identification is not feasible at the individual level of resolution.
Empirical evaluation of genetic clustering methods using multilocus genotypes from 20 chicken breeds.
TLDR
It is suggested that in species for which population structure is of interest, databases of multilocus genotypes at highly variable markers should be compiled and these genotypes could be used as training samples for genetic cluster analysis and to facilitate assignments of individuals of unknown origin to populations.
