Canine studies turn to crowdsourcing, data sharing for maximum benefit

Researchers from Cornell, Duke and the University of Massachusetts Medical School are asking dog owners to contribute to studies about canine genetics, personality and behaviors as they seek to unravel secrets of canine health and behavior. The studies use crowdsourcing to obtain adequate sample sizes, and researchers plan to share data with other scientists to facilitate further study of behavior and diseases that affect dogs and humans.
