The LUPA Project: 

The LUPA project was named after the female wolf that fed the twin founders of Rome to reflect the benefits human will obtain from dog genetics. The genome of affected dogs is compared to the genome of healthy dogs of the same breed to identify defects implied in the mechanisms of that disease. This project first aims at reducing the high level of inherited canine disease.
