The establishment of certain patterns of mystacial vibrissae in mice has been the aim of an extensive breeding program carried on in this laboratory since 1977. In a companion paper we have reported on variations in this pattern in an outbred population of ICR mice. Starting with 21 ICR animals we bred, mostly by brother-sister mating, for 13 bilaterally symmetric patterns of mystacial vibrissae characterized by the presence (or absence) of supernumerary whiskers (SWs). The strains are… CONTINUE READING
