Deadly Beauty, Part 2: Cat Breeding for Health

Dr. Leslie Lyons

Dr. Leslie Lyons .


In Episode 26, we covered dogs, and now it's time to take a walk on the
feline side. With more than 40 recognized cat breeds around the world,
there's a cat to suit the most finicky cat lover. How careful are breeders
when it comes to creating new breeds? Do they breed for looks, or for
health--or both? Listen as geneticist and researcher Dr. Leslie Lyons of the
Lyons Laboratory at UC Davis explains all about feline gene mapping, ways
it's identifying (and potentially eliminating) diseases in many species, and
even how feline forensics can solve human crimes! And to keep up to date
