From mouse strain nomenclature you can determine genetic background, genetic modifications, who created the strain and who currently distributes it. Genetic changes that occur in mouse strains are reflected in the formal nomenclature. Learn how maintaining genetic stability is critical to generating the most reliable and reproducible data.
Have you ever had to delay an experiment because you didn’t design your breeding scheme to produce enough knockout (KO) or control mice? Are you unsure of the most efficient way to set up your cross? Get a refresher on the fundamentals of basic mouse genetics and learn some tricks from our experts to plan your next experiment better.
