Project protocol — Contents
a. Mice are weaned at 25 days of age and transferred to male-only or female-only cages (up to ~4 mice/cage).
b. Individual coat color is recorded when mice are at least 4 wks of age.
MPD note: Coat color was submitted for each animal along with Bennett1 body weights. Individual animal data are available in the Bennett1 dataset. For those cases where multiple colors were reported per strain, the coat color from the highest generation was taken.
