Contest Rules:
Participants must be 18 years of age or older to enter. One entry per person per month please. Winners will be selected at random on the last day of each month. Only correct quizzes will be entered.


1. True or false

All dogs carry multiple mutations: a genetic test is used to look at a specific mutation.

True

False

2. True or false. If my animal has the mutation for RD, then that is the only defect that he/she has.

True

False

3. Chromosomes are:

made of protein, and reside in pairs in the nucleus

made of DNA, and reside in the nucleus in pairs (one from the sire and one from the dam)

4. Proteins are:

The basic unit of inheritance

The products that are coded for by DNA

5. Dogs have:

39

78

19

Pairs of chromosomes

6. In order have a genetic disease for a recessive mutation the animal must:

have only one bad copy of a gene

have two bad copies of a gene

7. My dog is a carrier of the mutation that causes RD. This means that:

he/she should be eliminated from my breeding program.

he/she should be bred with a partner whose traits complement my animal, and that all of the offspring should be tested

to determine if clear puppies have been produced to continue to enhance my breeding program.

8. RD is inherited as:

a simple recessive trait

a dominant mutation that is inherited with incomplete penetrance, meaning that animals with no clinical signs of the disease

can suddenly produce affected progeny
