Ever wonder which B6 mouse best suits a specific study? Many publications have discussed the different genetics of B6NTac and B6J from the Nnt mutation to the rd8 mutation of the Crb1 gene (Mattapallil et al. 2012).

When choosing a model for a study or for the background of a genetically engineered model, familiarity with the phenotypic characteristics of the strain can be very important.

A Comparative Phenotypic and Genomic Analysis of C57BL/6J and C57BL/6N mouse strains” provides information for researchers to choose an appropriate model for their needs based on the detailed analysis of genomic and phenotypic comparison of the C57BL/6N and C57BL/6J mouse strains and the relation of their genotypic differences to phenotypic outcomes.

In addition, a complete phenotypic characterization of C57BL/6NTac is available by visiting www.invivos.com.sg/black-6/ and click on the “Phenotyping” tab.
