Genetic analysis of polygenic traits in rats and mice has been very useful for finding the approximate chromosomal locations of the genes causing quantitative phenotypic variation, so-called quantitative trait loci (QTL). Further localization of the causative genes and their ultimate identification has, however, proven to be slow and frustrating. A major technique for gene identification in such models utilizes series of congenic strains with progressively smaller chromosomal segments… CONTINUE READING
