Mouse Breeding Consultation

Maintain genetic quality when breeding for mouse colonies is always overlooked, potentially compromising the quality of research. Knowledge of specific strains needs to be acquired before tailor-making the breeding strategies to ensure efficient and quality research.

Common areas requiring consultation include the following:

  • Efficient breeding program upon receiving founder animals from vendors
  • Breeding for compound (double/triple) transgenic strain
  • Breeding for embryonic stage animals
  • Determining the proper genetic background(s) to be maintained
  • Awareness of congenic vs non-congenic strain
  • Selecting the proper control animals for the experimentation
  • Avoiding genetic drift and sub-strain deviation from the strain you obtained from vendors
  • Archiving precious strains
