An important approach for understanding complex disease risk using the mouse is to map and ultimately identify the genes conferring risk. Genes contributing to complex traits can be mapped to chromosomal regions using genome scans of large mouse crosses. Congenic strains can then be developed to fine-map a trait and to ascertain the magnitude of the(More)
Several microsatellite genotyping panel sets have been developed that are polymorphic between C57BL/6J and CAST/Ei mice, or C57BL/6J and DBA/2J. One set of markers for each strain pair has an intermarker distance of approximately 20 cM, and a second set has an intermarker distance of 5 cM. The 20-cM set contains 105 markers for C57BL/6J x DBA/2J and 108 for(More)
