I saw this too. It's very interesting.
I like to use this kinda info to get people to donate to canine cancer research groups (like last year when we did the Cure Canine Cancer walk and donations went to Morris Animal Foundation). I tell folks that any advances in canine cancer mean advances for humans too!
Good idea to share the article on here.

This is so true. When we informed Guiding Eyes for the Blind (where we got Ajax as a “released” 8 week old would-be guide dog) of his health issues, they sent us a kit to take to the Animal Medical Center where he is being treated. AMC helped us with the kit and it was sent off to the Broad Institute in Cambridge MA for genome studies.

I don't know waht it is about posting to this site that causes me to lose my mind. The point of the above comment is that the kit was designed to send a blood sample from Ajax to be sequenced for genome study of MCT in canines, eventually to be applied to humans.
