ASU Electronic Theses and Dissertations


This collection includes most of the ASU Theses and Dissertations from 2011 to present. ASU Theses and Dissertations are available in downloadable PDF format; however, a small percentage of items are under embargo. Information about the dissertations/theses includes degree information, committee members, an abstract, supporting data or media.

In addition to the electronic theses found in the ASU Digital Repository, ASU Theses and Dissertations can be found in the ASU Library Catalog.

Dissertations and Theses granted by Arizona State University are archived and made available through a joint effort of the ASU Graduate College and the ASU Libraries. For more information or questions about this collection contact or visit the Digital Repository ETD Library Guide or contact the ASU Graduate College at gradformat@asu.edu.


Study of canine cancer’s molecular underpinnings holds great potential for informing veterinary and human oncology. Sporadic canine cancers are highly abundant (~4 million diagnoses/year in the United States) and the dog’s unique genomic architecture due to selective inbreeding, alongside the high similarity between dog and human genomes both confer power for improving understanding of cancer genes. However, characterization of canine cancer genome landscapes has been limited. It is hindered by lack of canine-specific tools and resources. To enable robust and reproducible comparative genomic analysis of canine cancers, I have developed a workflow for somatic and germline variant calling in canine …
