Poster Information
Abstract: The Gene Mine is the WA component of The Collaborative Cross (CC): a systems genetics resource, consisting of a purpose-built recombinant inbred panel of >1000 mice from over 80 strains, that have been generated and housed at the Animal Resources Centre, Perth [1, 2].

A central aim of The Gene Mine 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.
Summary: We are investigating the spinal and dental disease phenotypes of the Collaborative Cross mice population. References:
