Charles River & The Jackson Laboratory Seminar Tour 2019


University of Bristol

Join us on Wednesday 12th June 2019 from 10:30 to 11:30AM in Room C44 at the School of Biomedical Sciences, University of Bristol, Tankard's Cl, University Walk, Bristol BS8 1TD.


10:30 – 10:45     Registration

10:45 – 11:30     Genetic Drift – What It Is and How to Minimise Its Impact on Your Research

The phenotypes of genetically modified mouse strains depend on the genetic mutation and background. Genetic background is subject to genetic drift that may result in phenotypic drift over time. In this seminar, you will learn about the following topics:

  • The importance of using complete mouse nomenclature
  • The basis for genetic drift
  • Case studies demonstrating genetic drift and its effects on experimental results
  • Jackson Laboratory’s unique Genetic Stability Programme to stop cumulative genetic drift
  • Steps to ensure the long-term genetic and phenotypic stability of your mutant mice
