ILSXISS recombinant inbred mice were used to investigate genetic influences of alcohol consumption in the "drinking in the dark" model. Mice were given access to 20% ethanol during the early phase of their circadian dark cycle for four consecutive days. Alcohol-preferring strains of mice consume an amount of alcohol during this time that produces blood ethanol levels that are comparable to the levels that define binge drinking in humans.

Procedures conducted:
• body weight 
• intake monitoring  Ethanol consumed during 2h availability during dark phase. 4 days/trials with variations.
