  1. Numbers of specimens per strain (Females/Males), P-values for effects of strain sex and strain × sex interaction after pairwise two-way Procrustes Anova comparisons of the consomic strains against C57BL/6J, P-values for differences in Procrustes mean shape after pairwise DFAs of the consomic strains by sex and against C57BL/6J, per cent of specimens incorrectly assigned in cross-validation tests of the DFAs, and Procrustes distances between sexes and between C57BL/6J and the consomic strains. Stars indicate significant p-values after sequential Bonferroni correction assuming a general significance level of 0.05.
  2. a The full nomenclature of the strains is C57BL/6J-Chr #PWD/Ph/ForeJ, with # representing the chromosome number or designation respectively
