(1-2 paragraphs; list any publications that may describe the mutant or how it was isolated)
Briefly describe the mapping strategy used to identify the critical region (e.g. F2, backcross, congenic, etc.)
(i.e., the critical region): What loci define the proximal and distal boundaries of the critical region? Do NOT simply list genome coordinates. If the loci (Mit markers; SNPs; etc.) are NOT in public databases, then provide their sequences. Attach a spreadsheet or figure summarizing the genotyping data of progeny with respect to the chromosomal region of interest. Use mm9 (Build 37) for genomic coordinates.
Briefly outline plan for pre-publication submission to public repository; e.g. the Mutant Mouse Regional Resource Centers (http://www.mmrrc.org/)
