The project arose from an initial collaboration with Dr Marjory Brooks (James A Baker Institute, Cornell University), and I am very grateful for her input.

The web site's structure was put in place by Helen Sargan, and Janet Smith helped in the initial population of the databases. The 2010 version was put together and scripted by Chris Smick.

Many of the photographs have been assembled through the generosity of contributors to Wikimedia Commons and Wikipedia and have creative commons or GNU licences.

Passing the mouse over the photo will for most photographs give a web address for the original file. I am indebted to Joel Mills for the large collection of photos of veterinary conditions on Wikimedia, some of which I have used.

My thanks go to all of these people and to the many users who have made useful suggestions. I would be grateful to receive photographs of further inherited diseases for use on this database.
