A project funded by the NIH Office of Behavioral and Social Science Research via the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism and the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

This web site reports the status of a MultiCenter research effort on behavioral profiles of genetically defined stocks of mice. The study coordinated a standardized behavioral test battery at three separate laboratory sites in micebred in house or shipped in from commercial sources. A detailed description of the study, its data set, and supplemental information to a SCIENCE paper (284: 1670-1674, June 4, 1999) are available.
