The Collaborative Cross, developing a resource for mammalian systems genetics: A status report of the Wellcome Trust cohort
TLDR
A project funded by the Wellcome Trust to produce over 100 recombinant inbred mouse lines as part of the Collaborative Cross genetic reference panel to serve as a community resource for systems genetics studies is reported.
The expanded BXD family of mice: A cohort for experimental systems genetics and precision medicine
TLDR
The BXD family is an enduring, collaborative, and replicable resource to test causal and mechanistic links between genomes and phenomes at many stages and under a wide variety of treatments and interventions.
Ten Years of the Collaborative Cross
The February 2012 issues of GENETICS and G3: Genes, Genomes, Genetics present a collection of articles reporting recent advances from the international Collaborative Cross (CC) project. The goal of
Genetic analysis of complex traits in the emerging Collaborative Cross.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the genetic diversity of the CC, which derives from random mixing of eight founder strains, results in high phenotypic diversity and enhances the ability to map causative loci underlying complex disease-related traits.
The Collaborative Cross, a community resource for the genetic analysis of complex traits
TLDR
The Collaborative Cross will provide a common reference panel specifically designed for the integrative analysis of complex systems and will change the way the authors approach human health and disease.
Uses of Forward and Reverse Genetics in Mice to Study Gene Function
TLDR
This unit describes the basic genetic approaches used to in the study of mouse model systems and the success of such phenogenomic approaches depend on the efficacy by which specific mutations and variability can be introduced into the mouse genome.
Expression genetics and the phenotype revolution
TLDR
The authors have made enormous progress on the genotyping front, and it is now important to focus energy on devising ultrahigh-throughput methods to phenotype, and these models will be essential to test new treatments in a robust systems context that accounts for genetic variation.
Mouse Phenome Project: understanding human biology through mouse genetics and genomics.
  • M. Bogue
  • Biology, Medicine
    Journal of applied physiology
  • 2003
TLDR
A new and powerful paradigm for biomedical research is created with the availability of a nearly complete, high-accuracy sequence of the mouse genome.
The Collaborative Cross – A next generation mouse genetic resource population for high resolution genomic analysis of complex traits
TLDR
The Collaborative Cross resource contains extremely wide genetic diversity relative to existing mouse genetic resources, and has already demonstrated unprecedented power for high resolution QTL mapping.
High-Diversity Mouse Populations for Complex Traits.
TLDR
This integrated resource can be used to discover and evaluate disease mechanisms relevant across species and efficiently harnesses known genetic variation for precise and contextualized identification of complex disease mechanisms.

Genetical genomics: the added value from segregation.
TLDR
This work proposes a merger of genomics and genetics into 'genetical genomics', which involves expression profiling and marker-based fingerprinting of each individual of a segregating population, and exploits all the statistical tools used in the analysis of quantitative trait loci.
Genome-tagged mice (GTM): two sets of genome-wide congenic strains.
TLDR
This work has employed marker-assisted breeding to construct two sets of overlapping congenic strains, called genome-tagged mice (GTMs), that span the entire mouse genome, and found the genetic basis for the phenotypic strain differences can be rapidly mapped by simply screening the GTM strains.
Functional Annotation of Mouse Genome Sequences
TLDR
The International Mouse Mutagenesis Consortium proposes goals and outlines plans for the next 10 years for annotating the mouse genome and compiling data on mouse mutations.
Analysing complex genetic traits with chromosome substitution strains
TLDR
This work describes a different approach in which a panel of chromosome substitution strains (CSSs) is used for QTL mapping, and discusses the construction, applications and advantages of CSSs compared with conventional crosses for detecting and analysing QTLs, including those that have weak phenotypic effects.
The roads from phenotypic variation to gene discovery: mutagenesis versus QTLs
In model organisms, chemical mutagenesis provides a powerful alternative to natural, polygenic variation (for example, quantitative trait loci (QTLs)) for identifying functional pathways and complex
Genome-wide, large-scale production of mutant mice by ENU mutagenesis
TLDR
In screening over 14,000 mice for a large number of clinically relevant parameters, 182 mouse mutants are recovered and this mutagenesis screen leads to a significant increase in the number of mouse models available to the scientific community.
Positional cloning moves from perditional to traditional
TLDR
The positional candidate approach, which combines knowledge of map position with the increasingly dense human transcript map, greatly expedites the search process and will soon become the predominant method of disease gene discovery.
A high-resolution microsatellite map of the mouse genome.
TLDR
A genome-wide high-resolution genetic map incorporating 3368 microsatellites is developed to aid the construction of a robust physical map of the mouse genome.
