Making Sense of Mouse Nomenclature and Promoting Genetic Stability - Webinar

Posted on Dec 10, 2014 7:49:01 AM

Webinar - The Jackson Laboratory, Bar Harbor, Maine, US 
What’s in a name? 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. In this webinar, we will discuss the following topics: How to decode inbred, mutant and transgenic mouse strain names Critical factors that affect strain phenotypes: strain background, environmental factors, and genetic drift How quickly substrains can develop and their research implications Best practices to maintain a genetically consistent mouse colony
Organization: The Jackson Laboratory
January 8, 2015 (10am PT / 11am MT / 12pm CT / 1pm ET)
