A Charles River-Hosted JAX® Webinar: What’s in a Name? Understanding the Basics and Research Value of Mouse Nomenclature

Mouse nomenclature can be used to determine a strain’s genetic background, genetic modifications, who generated it, and who currently distributes it. Understanding mouse nomenclature also enables you to select optimal mouse models and control strains for your research, and generates the most reliable and reproducible data.

Join this webinar to learn about:

  • Interpreting the nomenclature of inbred, mutant, and genetically modified mouse strains
  • How quickly substrains develop and affect research results
  • The impact of genetic background on strain phenotypes
  • Considerations for selecting control mice
