Man's new best friend: What cats can teach us about human genetics and precision medicine

Although cats have lived alongside humans for millennia, it remains a dogs' world. This bias has historically bled into science as well. It's time for cats to get their day, argues veterinary medicine expert Leslie Lyons in a Forum published July 28 in the journal Trends in Genetics. Cats, she says, have the potential to be a valuable model organism for geneticists, as the feline genome is ordered similarly to humans.

Our right to access them for use and enjoyment are uniquely American but a “right” to use is not a “right to abuse.” We must remember that our rights to access public lands are “temporary rights” not “property rights.”
