Genetics Section


Genetics can easily get confusing (oh no I've gone cross-eyed!) but I have tried to write a quick and simple introduction and linked to some more in-depth resources for those interested in pursuing the topic further.

Genetics the Simple Way By Cait McKeown - An article which explains the basics of genetics in a way that everyone can understand. Includes links for more detailed articles about genetics in mice and other genetics sites.

Mouse Crosses and Standard Strains - The scientific version of my simplified article!

Inbred Strains of Mice - Detailed article about inbred mice and their genetic make-ups.

Hybrids and Outbred Mice

Glossary of Genetic Terms - A list of terms used in genetics literature, which may come in useful during any further reading.
