NIEHS, Perlegen Publish SNP Database, Haplotype Map for 15 Mouse Strains | GenomeWeb
NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) — The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences and Perlegen Sciences have published results from mouse genome-resequencing and genomic-analysis studies that can be used to link genes to environmental diseases, the National Institutes of Health said today.
In the study, scientists at Perlegen used Affymetrix oligonucleotide arrays to resequence four wild-type and eleven “classical” mouse strains and identify 8.27 million SNPs across the 15 strains.
