Research description

My lab is using genomic mapping techniques to identify genes associated with breed specific predispositions to particular cancers in dogs. Current projects are histiocytic sarcoma in flat coated retrievers, splenic haemangisosarcoma in German shepherd dogs and adenocarcinoma in cocker spaniels. We are also applying cytogenetic analyses to the same tumours.
