Abstract : The purpose of this proposal is to provide insight into gene environment interactions. It leverages the simplified genetics and detailed records of the military working dog population. There are several critical aspects to meeting the aims of this proposal. 1) development of data driven selection criteria, 2) biological sampling of representative dogs, and 3) generation of mathematical methodologies capable of handling heterogeneous data and statistical tests in consistent manner and providing clear and understandable results that are biologically valid. Here we provide a breakdown of the previous years work and document our progress towards achieving the specific aims we proposed.
