The Jackson Laboratory Free Webinar: Genetic Stability, Effects of Genetic Background, and Nomenclature

Published: Dec 16, 2010

December 16, 2010 -- As new and more complex strains, substrains, transgenics, and knockouts are developed and characterized, understanding the importance of genetic background and mouse strain nomenclature is becoming increasingly important. Ensure that your results are reliable and reproducible. Join Jackson Laboratory scientists on Thursday, December 16, at 1:00 pm, ET, for a free webinar on the following topics:

- Critical factors affecting phenotype (gene modifications, genetic background, environment, genetic drift)

- Minimizing genetic instability

- Substrains, their development, and importance

- Interpreting mouse strain names

- The impact of using proper nomenclature in your publications
