The definitive resource for anyone working with laboratory mice, this is the 6th edition of The Jackson Laboratory Handbook on Genetically Standardized Mice.
C57BL/6J from JAX is the most widely used inbred strain in research programs focused on finding genomic solutions for a wide range of diseases. Learn about the three key benefits that facilitate consistent and reproducible data generation.
Substrains of C57BL/6 inbred mice have genetic and phenotypic differences. Avoid common B6 research mistakes leading to lack of reproducibility and misinterpretation of research results.
NASA researchers are using JAX mice to better understand the reasons for microgravity induced bone loss to prepare space explorers for long-duration expeditions.
