A genetic research team has found a link between two chromosomes and osteochondrosis in standardbred trotter horses.
University of Minnesota researchers Jessica Petersen, Aaron Rendahl, James Mickelson, and Molly McCue and Rutgers University’s Sarah Ralston authored “Genome-Wide Association Analyses For Susceptibility To Osteochondrosis Dissecans (OCD) in Standardbred Trotters”, which was presented in poster format at the International Conference on the Status of Plant and Animal Genome Research in San Diego January 9-13.
“We found two chromosomes that look like there might be som...
