Abstract: Our colleagues make important points about the stability of genetic differences in mouse behavior across laboratories.
We agree completely with the points raised by Picciotto and Self. We find the stability of several effects reassuring. Also, there were virtually no effects of shipping animals, which is exceedingly good news and should facilitate validation of results, including characterizations of knockout mice, across laboratories.
