Breed Population Studies

    Here we linked to studies of breed populations and information on breeding with a focus on the population level.



    1. Icelandic Sheepdog

    Background: Dog breeds lose genetic diversity because of high selection pressure. Breeding
    policies aim to minimize kinship and therefore maintain genetic diversity. However, policies like
    mean kinship and optimal contributions, might be impractical. Cluster analysis of kinship can
    elucidate the population structure, since this method divides the population in clusters of related
    individuals. Kinship-based analyses have been carried out on the entire Icelandic Sheepdog
    population, a sheep-herding breed.
