New Genome Barks Podcasts
The American Kennel Club and the AKC Canine Health Foundation are pleased to debut two new podcasts in the Genome Barks series.
Genome Barks Podcast – The Orthopedic Foundation for Animals with Dr. Greg Keller
The Genome Barks Podcast Series welcomes Dr. Greg Keller, Chief of Veterinary Services with the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA). Dr. Keller shares with us the history of the OFA and discusses the many health databases that the OFA manages. Dr. Keller also explains the OFA process for evaluating radiographs and the differences between OFA evaluations and those of PennHip.
Genome Barks Podcast – How Can Great Danes and Chihuahuas Be Related? With Dr. Heidi Parker of NIH
Genome Barks welcomes Dr. Heidi Parker of the National Human Genome Research Institute of the National Institutes of Health. Dr. Parker has been studying how different purebred dogs are related genetically. This research will be instrumental in determining how different breeds share disease. How can the Great Dane and the Chihuahua be members of the same species? Listen and find out!
The Genome Barks podcast series features lectures from the highly successful AKC-CHF Breeders Symposia and provides responsible breeders and pet owners an inside look at the work being done by the AKC and the AKC Canine Health Foundation.
New podcasts are released every two weeks and can be accessed from either the American Kennel Club website at www.akc.org or the AKC Canine Health Foundation website at www.akcchf.org – click on “Podcasts.” They are also available on Apple’s iTunes or directly at www.genomebarks.com
Clubs are encouraged to add the Genome Barks Podcast link to their home pages.
