NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) - Researchers from the UK, US, and Germany reported in Nature that they have sequenced and compared the genomes of mice from 17 strains.

In the process, the researchers found some 56.7 million SNPs, nearly nine million small insertions and deletions, and hundreds of thousands of structural variants in mice. By bringing this information together with gene expression and other data, they were also able to track down hundreds of quantitative trait loci and variants contributing to tissue-specific gene expression.
