11h30 – 12h30               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 which may result in phenotypic drift over time. In this seminar, you will learn about the following topics:

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