The genetic architecture of fluctuating asymmetry of mandible size and shape in a population of mice: Another look

Leamy, L.J.; Klingenberg, C.P.; Sherratt, Emma; Wolf, Jason B.; Cheverud, James M.

Description

Fluctuating asymmetry (FA), typically measured by variation in the differences between right and left sides of bilateral traits, is commonly used to assess developmental instability (DI) in populations. A previous quantitative trait locus (QTL) investigation using an F2 intercross mouse population found little evidence of individual loci affecting FA in mandible size, but an abundance of epistatic interactions between loci. Here we extend this work by testing whether these patterns replicate in...[Show more]
