    S2Ep3: Dog Genetics

    S2Ep3: Dog Genetics

    In this episode, hosts Dr. Sabah Kadri and Arshi Arora discuss the genetics of our cute furry friends, the effects of domestication on natural selection and how years of in-breeding have led to the study of clear mappings between dog traits and gene variants. Our hosts gave each other a task to come up with some interesting traits and their genetic markers. A must listen.
