JAX Tech Talk Episode 60: Let's talk JAXBoy, a new and improved CD45.1 C57BL/6 mouse (Nov. 8, 2022)

November 8, 2022 - Congenic markers are a key tool for tracking cells in adoptive transfer and competitive bone marrow transplant experiments. But did you know that traditional strains harbor an artifactual SJL-congenic interval that may confound your results and reduce experimental efficiency? In this episode, we discuss JAXboy, a strain in which the CD45.1 allele was introduced directly onto the C57BL/6 background. JAXBoy is a modern, clean, and efficient strain that circumvents these issues and can better facilitate your research objectives.
