~ Canine Genetics and Epidemiology ~


    Canine Genetics and Epidemiology is a peer-reviewed, open access journal addressing genetic, genomic and epidemiological research in both domestic and wild canids, relating to breed and species diversity, and canine evolution.


    About Us:

    This international journal aims to disseminate research not only between scientists, but also to inform veterinarians, dog breeders and owners. To encourage the public understanding of science, each published article will include an extended lay summary plus key “take home messages” for non-specialists and an educated lay readership.


    Canine Genetics and Epidemiology focuses on the following areas:


    • Canine monogenic and complex disease genetics, genomics and epidemiology
    • Canine-human comparative disease genetics/genomics
    • Domestic dog breed genetics and breed diversity
    • Canine evolutionary genetics
    • Canine wildlife conservation genetics and biology
    • Dog/canine immunogenetics and MHC diversity
    • Canine genetics and physiology
    • Morphological and behavioral genetics
    • Epidemiological studies of canine health and disease
    • Canine gene-phenotype relationship
    • Gene-gene and gene-environment interactions in canids


    The journal will not publish articles describing research generated through experimental procedures that inflict pain and suffering to animals.


    All articles published by Canine Genetics and Epidemiology are made freely and permanently accessible online immediately upon publication, without subscription charges or registration barriers. Further information about open access can be found here.
