Here we report a high-quality draft genome sequence of the domestic dog (Canis familiaris), together with a dense map of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) across breeds. The dog is of particular interest because it provides important evolutionary information and because existing breeds show great phenotypic diversity for morphological, physiological and behavioural traits. We use sequence comparison with the primate and rodent lineages to shed light on the structure and evolution of… 

Whole genome sequencing of canids reveals genomic regions under selection and variants influencing morphology

The results identify variants of strong impact associated with 16 phenotypes, including body weight variation which, when combined with existing data, explain greater than 90% of body size variation in dogs.

Evolution of the Dog Genome

The dog genome sequence enabled studies that shed light on canid phylogeny, revealing that this history created a genomic haplotype structure that is highly amenable to the association mapping.

Annotation of the domestic dog genome sequence: finding the missing genes

The catalog of canine protein-coding genes and the search for missing genes are reviewed, and rationales for an accurate identification of noncoding molecules though next-generation sequencing are proposed.

Similar genomic proportions of copy number variation within gray wolves and modern dog breeds inferred from whole genome sequencing

This work develops a new accurate probabilistic framework to create fine-scale genomic maps of segmental duplications (SDs), compare patterns of CNV across groups and investigate their role in the evolution of the domestic dog by using information from 34 canine genomes, the first comparison of genome wide CNV patterns in domestic and wild canids using whole-genome sequencing data.

Genomics: The dog has its day

The high-quality draft sequence of the dog genome is published – that of female boxer Tasha – and some of the genetic differences between breeds are outlined and Comparative analysis with humans and rodents provides a general perspective on gene and genome evolution.

Comparing the Human and Canine Genomes

The dog is a very useful model to study human hereditary diseases and their therapy, including gene therapy, and knowledge on the human and dog genomes is very advanced.

Evolutionary genomics of dog domestication

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.

Origins of the Domestic Dog and the Rich Potential for Gene Mapping

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.

An Improved Canine Genome and a Comprehensive Catalogue of Coding Genes and Non-Coding Transcripts

An improved genome build, canFam3.1, is presented and a much-improved annotation of the canine genome is provided and regulatory functions for several of the novel non-coding transcripts are suggested.

A high-resolution integrated map of copy number polymorphisms within and between breeds of the modern domesticated dog

This work developed a customized high-density tiling array across the canine genome and used it to discover CNVs in nine genetically diverse dogs and a gray wolf, allowing the first population genetics analysis of canine structural variation and identify CNVs that potentially contribute to breed specific traits.



The Dog Genome: Survey Sequencing and Comparative Analysis

A survey of the dog genome sequence demonstrates the power of sample sequencing for comparative analysis of mammalian genomes and the generation of species-specific resources.

Sequence and comparative analysis of the chicken genome provide unique perspectives on vertebrate evolution

A draft genome sequence of the red jungle fowl, Gallus gallus, provides a new perspective on vertebrate genome evolution, while also improving the annotation of mammalian genomes.

An integrated 4249 marker FISH/RH map of the canine genome

An integrated canine genome map that is both dense and accurate is constructed, allowing the identification of 79 conserved segments between the dog and human genomes, dramatically extending the length of most previously described CS.

The Structure of Haplotype Blocks in the Human Genome

It is shown that the human genome can be parsed objectively into haplotype blocks: sizable regions over which there is little evidence for historical recombination and within which only a few common haplotypes are observed.

Initial sequence of the chimpanzee genome and comparison with the human genome

It is found that the patterns of evolution in human and chimpanzee protein-coding genes are highly correlated and dominated by the fixation of neutral and slightly deleterious alleles.

Segmental phylogenetic relationships of inbred mouse strains revealed by fine-scale analysis of sequence variation across 4.6 mb of mouse genome.

High-density SNP screening of panels of inbred mouse strains is used to discover an extremely dense set of SNPs in 13 classical and two wild-derived inbred strains in five genomic intervals totaling 4.6 Mb of DNA sequence, and to analyze the segmental haplotype structure defined by these high-density SNPs.

Comparative analyses of multi-species sequences from targeted genomic regions

The generation and analysis of over 12 megabases of sequence from 12 species, all derived from the genomic region orthologous to a segment of about 1.8 Mb on human chromosome 7 containing ten genes, show conservation reflecting both functional constraints and the neutral mutational events that shaped this genomic region.

A map of human genome sequence variation containing 1.42 million single nucleotide polymorphisms

This high-density SNP map provides a public resource for defining haplotype variation across the genome, and should help to identify biomedically important genes for diagnosis and therapy.
