Discrete genetic modules are responsible for complex burrow evolution in Peromyscus mice

January 2013

Jesse N. Weber, Brant K. Peterson & Hopi E. Hoekstra

The work seeks to identify genetic influences on a complex behavior in mice, burrow formation. The authors used a modified RADseq procedure to genotype two species of wild mice with distinct burrowing behavior. Pippin Prep was used for size selection in their RADseq protocol.
