Study Should Speed Discovery of Gene Function
A study published in the journal Proceedings of the National
Academy of Sciences should help scientists decide which
mouse strains to breed in experiments aimed at mapping phenotypes
to genes, greatly increasing the speed with which the function
of genes are discovered.
