1. A method for determining the contributions of canid populations to a canid genome, comprising:

  • (a) genotyping a sample obtained from a test canid to determine the identity of one or both alleles present in the test canid genome for each of a set of markers, wherein the set of markers is indicative of the contributions of canid populations to the genome of the test canid;

    (b) using a specifically programmed computer comprising an algorithm to compare the identity of one or both alleles for each of the set of markers determined to be present in the test canid genome to a database comprising a plurality of canid population profiles, wherein each canid population profile comprises genotype information for the set of markers in the canid population; and

    (c) determining the contributions of canid populations to the test canid genome.
