La génétique du trou de souris
Genetics of mouse-hole
CoReBio PACA, case 901, parc scientifique de Luminy, 13288 Marseille Cedex 9, France
The Oldfield mouse and the Deer mouse build very different burrows in nature and also in the laboratory. This behaviour is innate and, in a series of beautiful experiments making use of new generation sequencing for genetic mapping, the authors map the burrow architecture to a very small number of loci and demonstrate modular evolution of behaviour.
