Assessing Genetic Diversity in Kromfohrländer - View to a cross-breeding project

Kromfohrländer, a native German breed, is known to have a very limited gene pool and is thus subject to a cross-European breeding project focusing to expand the pool. Given the vulnerable genetic status of the breed, the Finnish Breed Association for Kromfohrländer initiated a project aiming at measuring the genome-wide diversity of the breed in 2013. Several dogs of Central European origin were also recruited for the study.
