Genetics question
 Hello there:

                        I have a question about genetics. I want to know if it would be possible for two very close species (eg. tigers and lions) to be unable to reproduce together but to be perfectly able to reproduce within their own species. I do not mean a case where the offspring is sterile, like the mule (or very often ligers and tigons), but a case where two set of genes, very similar, are somehow unable to fit together in a consistent basis. This is all speculative and my knowledge of genetics is basically non-existent but theoretically speaking I thought of two species (I'm thinking of mammals, mostly) that originated on the same could diverge enough genetically speaking (without becoming two far apart in appearance and abilities) for this to happen.

 I hope it's not too off-topic, if it is, I'm sorry and I would appreciate any links to some site where it would be appropriate :)

Snuppy
They have cloned the first dog. I think this is very exciting. Genetics and cloning fascinate me... just the pharmasutical implications alone, not to mention organs for transplant. Moral implications aside, there is potential.

Sometimes you just need to stop and think
Rich Dog Abuse

I'm back from a 6 week internship at an animal hospital in the NW suburbs of Chicago. Quite an experience: I loved it.

One more year of school, then hopefully I'll be a full fledged, certified vet tech. :D

vet tech
Let me just say that this is becoming a lot harder than I thought it was going to be. I mean, I've got like 4 A's, a B and a C, but still.

It's a wonder there are any techs out there...

Oh, I'm here. :D

Genetics
Scientists have mapped the dog genome, and found that we are genetically closer to dogs than we are to mice. Speaking of rodents, they have now cloned a rat.
