LSS 61: Dogs and their diseases (part 2)

We follow up with our four-legged fluffy friends in this week’s episode. To start the show Liz Mahood interviews Dr Rory Todhunter of the Cornell College of Veterinary Medicine. Dr Todhunter is a leading researcher of canine hip dysplasia and osteoarthritis. Liz interviewed him about how these diseases are inherited, how they can be mitigated, which breeds are most susceptible, and more.

Carrying on with canine genetics, Esther Racoosin speaks with Dr Adam Boyko about analysing the genetic data collected from thousands of dogs to better understand the role between genes and canine traits and diseases. Then, Candice Limper brings us the Science History of dog domestication, and how they have evolved from their ancient ancestors into the animals we know today.

To round things off Luisa Torres brings us the Science Calendar to bring you up to speed with the local goings-on with scientific events.
