Canine Parentage

DNA technology can be used to determine parentage for dogs. Individuals have two copies of every piece of DNA, one inherited from the mother and the other from the father. If we can distinguish these two DNA strands in the laboratory we can test whether a particular father (or occasionally mother) is a true parent. DNA markers, spaced at intervals along the chromosomes, enable us to sample the DNA of an individual dog. The profile of these DNA markers in an offspring must correspond to those in the parents.
