Study of canine cancer’s molecular underpinnings holds great potential for informing veterinary and human oncology. Sporadic canine cancers are highly abundant (~4 million diagnoses/year in the United States) and the dog’s unique genomic architecture due to selective inbreeding, alongside the high similarity between dog and human genomes both confer power for improving understanding of cancer genes. However, characterization of canine cancer genome landscapes has been limited. It is hindered by lack of canine-specific tools and resources.
