In the dog it is for now possible to obtain a low resolution map, based on genetic markers such as microsatellites which still allow us a linkage study, i.e. correlation between the genetic markers and the genes involved in certain phenotypic expressions.
Knowledge of the structure of the domestic cat genome is constantly developing. Several laboratories around the world (including the University of California and the National Cancer Institute of the United States) have long been committed to completing the feline genetic map.

Cryopreserved seed, already widely used in the breeding of large animals, is increasingly used for artificial insemination of pets and for the protection of genetic material of rare species and valuable breeds.look >>>
