Genetics of the Mouse


This book, written by experienced geneticists, covers topics ranging from the natural history of the mouse species, its handling and reproduction in the laboratory, and its classical genetics and cytogenetics, to modern issues including the analysis of the transcriptome, the parental imprinting and X-chromosome inactivation.

For each chapter an up-to-date list of pertinent references is provided.


In short, this book offers an essential resource for all scientists who use or plan to use mice in their research.
