Study Detail

TitleThe genetic basis of high altitude adaptation in house mice
Study TypeOther
Abstract Organisms living at high altitudes are presented with physiologically and metabolically challenging conditions due to the reduction in barometric pressure and oxygen availability. Hypoxia can be detrimental to survival, and a powerful homeostasis system has evolved in animals to cope with fluctuatio .. [more]
