Facts about the Algerian mouse

"The researchers conducted their study in two species of mice - one, known asMus musculus, has been inbred over many generations in the laboratory, so thatall of the animals in any one strain are genetically identical; the secondspecies, known as Mus spretus, is, by nature, highly resistant to tumordevelopment in several organs, such as the lung, skin, liver and colon.

domesticus strain C57BL10/J and Mus spretus is being used to accomplish two objectives: (1) To establish congenic lines of mice whose segments contain a discrete segment of Mus spretus on a Mus domesticus background and (2) To measure the genetic recombination distance between two simple sequence repeat (SSR) loci, D17Nds2 and D17Nds3, located on the proximal region of Chr 17.

domesticus strain C57BL1OJ and Mus spretus is used to determine the genetic recombination distance between two simple sequence repeat loci (SSR markers), D17NDS2 andD17NDS3, located on the proximal region of mouse Chromosome 17 (Chr 17).
