Inherited Diseases of Food Animals

Diagnostic laboratories are in a special position to identify and characterize inherited diseases of food animals. Many of these diseases are significant for the breed in which they occur, particularly if carriers are used for artificial insemination. Some of these diseases are potentially useful models of comparable human diseases.
