This week on Genome Barks we welcome Dr. Keith Murphy, the Director of Clemson University’s Genomics Institute. Dr. Murphy talks about canine hereditary nephropathy in English Cocker Spaniels, known as Alport Syndrome in the human. In the human, the cure for Alport Syndrome is kidney transplant; not a viable option in the dog. Dr. Murphy and his team have determined the genetic cause of hereditary nephropathy in the English Cocker Spaniel, and Dr. Murphy discusses the use of the genetic test by breeders.
