Researchers ID Genes

Does anyone know the name of this study and if it's published online anywhere?

Re: Researchers ID Genes

Sadly the paper itself appears to only be available on a subscription basis to the National Academy of Sciences.

Pony up for the text.

Re: Researchers ID Genes

Just some initial thoughts.
1. Could this be the answer to unwanted dwarfism in different breeds?
2. Each breed of dog is genetically distinct and probably very far removed for wolves.
3. Interesting correlation between humans and dogs. Seems to be somewhat of an indication that we are humanizing canines.

Iíll give more of my thoughts after I think about what Iíve just read. Iíve got to roll it around in my head for a little.

Interesting, since we always hear how close dogs and wolves are genetically.

This I think was kinda inferred in that BBC program that I linked to in the Links section? though I don't understand it well enough to put words to it.

Yes, I think that had always been the thought but it seems like they are saying that more recently the modern dog has become more evolved.

I can't say that I really understand what they're saying yet, just something I picked up from reading this.
