Figure 1

Selection experiments with domestic species indicate many genes underlie variation in body size. (a) Angus cattle [35] and (b) mice [36] from long-term selection experiments for high and low growth show phenotypes outside the normal range of the unselected population. The photographs were kindly supplied by Robert Herd (NSW Department of Primary Industries, NSW, Australia) and Lutz Bünger (University of Edinburgh, Edinburgh, UK). Please note that the photographs used within this figure are permitted to be used only within this publication.
