Cat & Dog Workshop

This workshop was sponsored in part by generous contributions from The Morris Animal Foundation and Illumina. The Cat & Dog workshop will provide presentations of cat and dog genetic studies that have been submitted to PAG from both USA and non-USA researchers. The workshop will also have discussion topics, covering areas of interest that would be of value to the overall communities and young investigators.
