Abstract

How do chimaeras of large and small strains grow? Is their growth rate related to the cellular proportions in the body as a whole, or in any particular organ? Do the cells from the faster growing component tend to outgrow those from the slower growing? These are the main questions that we have been trying to answer, and this paper is a preliminary account of the results.
