Scientists in Europe and the US studied the genetic basis for a neurodegenerative disorder in dogs. Through whole genome sequencing data, they found a SINE insertion in the ATP1B2 gene that appears to be causative for a subtype of the disorder. The team used PippinHT for size-selecting cDNA fragments prior to sequencing.
