Presented by Leslie A. Lyons, PhD, University of California at Davis at the 34th Annual Winn Feline Foundation Symposium on Feline Health. The recent genetic sequencing of the cat has led to the development of a powerful new genetic resource, the cat 63K DNA array. Researchers can now focus sample collection more efficiently; extended relatves are no longer required. with sample testing on the array, 63,000 DNA markers can be assessed, delivering results in 3 weeks. Dr. Lyons presents examples of recent successes for cat traits and diseases. The presentation also covers a new study design evaluating more challenging traits, such as FIP resistance and susceptibility, and other complex consditions in the cat. The original presentation was delivered on June 28, 2012 at the 34th Annual Winn Feline Foundation Symposium on Feline Health.
