Cog Dog Radio

Dogs, Personality, and Breed with Dr Jessica Hekman

Join Sarah as she discusses the recent paper “Ancestry-inclusive dog genomics challenges popular breed stereotypes” (Morrill, et al) with one of the authors and repeat podcast guest, Dr Jessica Hekman. Affectionately known as “the mutt paper” amongst its authors, this research has been taking the internet by storm due to the click-bait-y articles that have been written about it. What does the paper actually say? What does it not say? What can we use this research for, as professionals?

The paper and the supplementary materials: https://www.science.org/doi/10.1126/science.abk0639?fbclid=IwAR0CY2tlftCuZPHGdR7rcioZRfj_hsqNHZ4uytNPcNQQAO5iRtYN-a-NYgY
