Dogs have been sharing the same environments with humans for at least 10,000 years. So, it's no surprise that at least half of 400 inherited canine diseases are similar to human ones. By studying both species' DNA sequences (research known as genomics), scientists are finding out how to personalize medicine, improve treatments, and develop preventive diagnostic tests for canine and human diseases. Click on the infographic to learn more about how genomics research has helped inform how we take care of ourselves—and our best friends.
