Basic Genetics for Dog Breeders
In this online class, we’ll cover the ABCs of basic genetic concepts, from alleles and X-linked genes to modes of inheritance, that dog breeders need to understand to create an effective breeding program.
Dog lovers Katie Weihbrecht PhD and Trisha Rettig PhD make genetics easy for all of us!
We even have some practical exercises for you to practice doing some analysis of breeding combinations.
This online class is a follow on to the Using Pedigrees to Breed Better Dogs class so why not take them both?
This class is included in ABCM Platinum, ABCM Platinum Plus and Puppy College Memberships.
