Dog Breed Identification Dna

What is your experience with DNA testing to identify the breed of dog through Petco? We have a mixed breed dog rescue which is only beautiful, but just know that she is part Golden Retriever. We are curious to find out what mix of breeds that others might be, but the comments I read in these DNA tests are so extreme. Some say they are accurate, others, including veterinarians say they are a total waste of money. What you say? Please do not respond to this criticism – I am the most loving and responsible pet lover you can find. I said we were curious and to add made to identify the races [more...]

HIV Vaccine | Biology in Action

“The prime is a plasmid DNA vaccine, PENNVAX™-G, and the boost is a virus vector vaccine, Modified Vaccinia Ankara-Chiang Mai Double Recombinant (MVA-CMDR). Together, the vaccines are designed to deliver a diverse mixture of antigens for HIV-1 subtypes A, B, C, D and E”. Taken separately, the strategies have been proven safe. Several precautions have to be taken because the study is the use of different HIV antigens during the priming (A-D) and boosting A/E. The DNA vaccine was designed at the University of Pennsylvania and licensed by Inovio Pharmaceuticals. The vaccine is based off a [more...]

DNA Dog Testing: More Questions than Answers

Should they be liable if that dog bites a third party and a DNA test was not done? These tests cost $70.00 and above. Should the cost be borne by the shelter or the adopter? Will steeper costs affect adoptions? What percentage of pit bull in such a genetic analysis is enough to violate a ban? Can a city with a ban or spay/neuter mandate of certain breeds force pet owners to test and share results? Can homeowner's insurance providers require tests? Should organizations like the American Kennel Club be liable if the purchased pet isn't as "pedigree" as they represented? Should they provide the [more...]
