All about Ratón Negro de Laboratorio (C57BL/6)
|Naming conventions for these lab rodents consist of a combination of capital letters and numbers that describe the parent strains and their sub-strain rank. This particular variety was the sixth sub-strain produced by mating the two C57BL mice.
|Like any other animal species on the planet, they vary greatly in size and weight. On average, a lab mouse weighs 20 grams and lives between 1.5 to 3.0 years. That’s how often a new iPhone comes out!
|Where It Lives
|Out of over 3,000 varieties of lab mice, the breed of black mice known as C57BL/6 is the most well-known and widely used animal models in research. They’re an inbred variety of mice raised in laboratories to be used as research specimens for studying behavioral patterns, genetic inheritance, chronic illnesses, and immunology. Inbred strains are produced from at least 20 generations of mating from the same litter to obtain the highest possible level of genetic uniformity.
|Developed in the lab by Dr. Clarence Cook Little in 1921. He was the first to establish the use of inbred mice in studying genetics.
|These mice can give birth to a new litter every 3 weeks!
