Welcome to Perlegen's Mouse Website!
The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) contracted with Perlegen Sciences, Inc. to identify DNA polymorphisms (SNPs) in 15 commonly used strains of inbred laboratory mice. Using high-density oligonuclueotide array technology, the study identified over 8 million SNPs and other genetic differences between these strains and the previously sequenced C57BL/6J reference strains (Phase 1). By leveraging data provided by Mark Daly's research team at the Broad Institute, genotypes were also predicted for 40 other common strains (Phase 2).
