Unravelling selection signatures in a single dog breed suggests recent selection for morphological and behavioural traits

Juliane Friedrich, Andrea Talenti, Per Arvelius, Erling Strandberg, Marie J Haskell & Pam Wiener
Strong selection has resulted in substantial morphological and behavioural diversity across modern dog breeds, which makes dogs interesting model animals to study the underlying genetic architecture of these traits. However, results from between-breed analyses may confound selection signatures for behaviour and morphological features that were co-selected during breed development. In this study, we assess population genetic differences in a unique resource of dogs of the same breed but with systematic behavioural selection in only one...
