Data and R code from: GC-MS analysis of murine oestrous odours

Jia Tang
For female mammals, communicating the timing of ovulation is essential for successful reproduction. Urinary volatile organic compounds (VOCs) play a key role in intraspecific communication among many mammals. Using laboratory mice as a model species, we investigated urinary VOCs across the oestrous cycle. We monitored the oestrous stage through daily vaginal cytology assessment and analysed urinary VOCs using headspace gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS), testing the utility of portable GC-MS against the more robust benchtop device....
