Geographic spread?[edit]

Is there any data on the geographic spread of this disease? --GSchjetne (talk) 10:55, 8 January 2009 (UTC)

Species?[edit]

Can this reasonably be seen as a new (asexual) species? It seems there's little reason to deny it this status apart from its evolutionary origin. Evercat (talk) 15:03, 2 November 2009 (UTC)

Note on dates[edit]

For discussion of the difference between the origin of the cancer and the common ancestor of extant cancers, see Rebbeck et al (2009) Note that Murgia et al's (2006) estimate was based on divergence of tumors from each other, and so only only estimates the time of the common ancestor. Especially note that Murgia et al say:

Whether this time period represents the time the tumor first arose or whether it represents a later bottleneck in the tumor's dispersion as a parasite cannot be resolved.

New paper[edit]

"Transmissible Dog Cancer Genome Reveals the Origin and History of an Ancient Cell Lineage" by Elizabeth P. Murchison, et. al, Science 24 January 2014: Vol. 343 no. 6169 pp. 437-440. DOI: 10.1126/science.1247167 -- AnonMoos (talk) 08:40, 5 February 2014 (UTC)

There was a photo. It has been removed due to wikilawyering. Pity that it gets in the way of the progress of the article. 105.184.107.116 (talk) 08:26, 25 March 2014 (UTC)
