Biochemical diversity and evolution in the genus Mus

François Bonhomme, Josette Catalan, Janice Britton-Davidian, Verne M. Chapman, Kazuo Moriwaki, Eviatar Nevo, Louis Thaler

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Thirteen biochemical groups of wild mice from Europe, Asia, and Africa belonging to the genus Mus are analyzed at 22-42 protein loci. Phylogenetic trees are proposed and patterns of biochemical evolution are discussed, as well as the possible contribution of wild mice to the genetic diversity of laboratory stocks.
