Genomic data are widely available for investigating phenotypes that impact both human and animal health. Although the investigation of human health often begins with model organisms, genomics technologies and software are often initially developed with only the human genome in mind, severely limiting their comparative applicability. Translational research requires robust systems-focused, or “One Health,” solutions
