Irradiation experiments conducted on dogs and mice at Argonne National Laboratory, IL between 1952 and 1992 led to creation of archives of paraffin-embedded tissues accompanied by extensive datasets with gross pathology and histopathology information. Over the past 40 years, these data were investigated computationally, using different statistical approaches. Embedded tissues are used to this day as a source of genomic and mitochondrial DNA for quantitative PCR amplification. Data and paraffin block sections are available upon request-interested researchers should visit the Websites http://janus.northwestern.edu/dog-tissues/introduction.php for dog and http://janus.northwestern.edu/janus2/index.php for mouse archive.
