Food and water intake were measured every day over a four day period. Water was available from two tubes (left and right); intake was measured separately for each tube. Additional fields were derived from the primary measurements (daily average intakes, daily average intakes adjusted for body weight, and percent preference for right water tube over left). The daily average values and the right tube preference are used for MPD correlations and strain outlier analyses.

Procedures conducted:
• body weight 
• intake monitoring  Food intake, water intake. Daily.
