Identifying genes linked to complex multifactorial diseases presents a formidable challenge for the post-genomic era. In the November 23 issue of Science, Monika Stoll and researchers at the Medical College of Wisconsin in Milwaukee describe a 'physiological profiling' strategy to investigate systems biology (Science 2001, 294:1723-1726).They measured 239 cardiovascular and renal phenotypes, during normal and stressed conditions, in 113 male rats derived from an F2 intercross. They could map 81
