Poster Information
Abstract: The Collaborative Cross (CC) is a systems genetics resource [1]. The Gene Mine (the WA component of the CC) is a recombinant inbred panel of >1000 mice from over 80 strains, generated and housed at the Animal Resources Centre, Perth [2]. A primary aim of the CC is to provide a stable, reproducible genetic reference platform for quantitative and qualitative analysis of gene-variants, epistatic mechanisms, and environmental factors resulting in disease [3]. We are screening the Gene Mine CC population for spinal and dentofacial deformities. Our aim is to answer the question: “How are these deformities genetically connected?”
Summary: What is the genetic relationship between spinal deformity and dentofacial deformity?
