Transgenic mice genetically engineered to produce increased levels of growth hormones, accelerated somatic growth, and larger terminal sizes [Palmiter et al., 1982, 1983] offer an intriguing model with which to investigate the genetic and developmental control of skeletal proportions. In this study, form differences in the mandible between giant transgenic mice (MT-rGH) and their normal litter-mate controls are examined using data generated by finite-element scaling analysis (FESA).
