Cute Mini Elephants

Body shape variation in dogs as a training set for Genotype / Phenotype transformation.Sequence the genomes of all the true breeding varieties of dogs. The physical dimensions of the same set of dogs is also recorded. Now let some algorithm extract the correlations between shape and genome. An ideal outcome will be an application where the input is an initial dog shape and associated genome and a desired dog shape. The output will be a new genome.If these growth rules are conserved across species then the same application might be able to design a cute little short legged dog sized elephant.
