Selective breeding may have produced a beautiful variety of dog breeds, but it has also left many with a legacy of genetic disease. To combat this trend, Cornell researchers have launched the Cornell Estimated Breeding Value (EBV) website through which the public can find the propensity for a hip and elbow dysplasia (malformation) of over a million individual registered purebred dogs and designer dogs, such as labradoodles, in the public domain of the Orthopedic Foundation for Animals (OFA) registry.
