Intervention studies

MPD includes a number of studies where a foreign substance or pathogen was administered, or an environmental perturbation was introduced and compared against a control cohort or baseline readings. Most of the links below lead to phenotype data pages ... on those pages you can click on symbols to view methods and protocols. Specific interventions are organized below into sections for: diet; drugs; exercise; pathogens and parasites; and toxicity, challenges and mutagens.

The following are not included above:
    • glucose and insulin tolerance tests
    • ingestive preference tests
    • nociception tests where substance / perturbation is a pain inducer
