Portland Alcohol Research Center, Department of Behavioral Neuroscience, Oregon Health and Science University, Portland, Oregon, USA
Genes Brain Behav 2:201-13. 2003..These results suggest that different specific versions of a test reflect the influence of different genes, and that genetic influences on different tests were also distinct...
- Genetic selection of mice for high voluntary wheel running: effect on skeletal muscle glucose uptakeC L Dumke
