Researchers have sequenced the DNA of 15 mouse strains that are commonly used in biomedical research, the National Institutes of Health said today.
The National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences contracted Perlegen Sciences to complete the work, which has produced data that will "help researchers better understand what makes some individuals more susceptible than others to certain diseases," NIEHS said in a statement
The NIEHS also plans to use these data to determine how substances in the environment are linked to disease.
The data, which includes more than 8.3 million SNPs, is available through the National Center for Biotechnology Information website.
