How mouse research is relevant to problems in animal breeding has been discussed by Chapman (1961), Roberts (1965) and Falconer (1967). They have suggested that, testing the validity of genetic theory, or elucidating the genetic control of a biological system or exploring unknown relationships between characters are appropriate objectives of relevant experiments. But the relevance of mouse experimentation is also determined by the practical usefulness of the subject of research.
