Technical Information
The C57BL mouse is one of the most widely used strains in both animal research and the development of mutant mouse lines. Classified as an inbred, C57BL/6 results from a crossing of no fewer than 20 consecutive generations of brother-sister matings, which allows the offspring to possess both genetic and phenotypic uniformity.
