Teaching Genetics With Dogs


Our tagline for this project is, “Mendel, Molecules, & a Cold Wet Nose.”

This project uses canids as a unifying model for teaching genetics. Dogs are a student-friendly way to connect classical & modern genetics to anatomy, physiology, and function. We have a growing library of teaching problems, published datasets, and photos tagged with key traits & genotypes.


Originally launched in another web framework, the project is on hiatus while we move to Omeka, a digital assets manager and exhibition builder designed for museums and digital humanities projects.
