Geometric morphometrics: a mathematical tool to compare morphological traits based on SOST dysfunction in mice

Introduction: Genetic disorders are usually characterised by subjective morphological traits. Mouse models should represent the human situation but it is difficult to translate morphology traits from one species to another. Thus, there is a demand to objectively assess morphological traits. Geometric morphometrics is a mathematical tool to evaluate morphology based on normalised three-dimensional coordinates. Here we use geometric morphometrics to compare the morphology of <em...
