Genetic Profiling

Single-Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNPs) are ideal for strain background characterization or quality control of the most commonly used mouse inbred strains or to assess genetic variability in outbred stocks. They are also suited to support accelerated backcrossing (e.g. Speed Congenics). We provide a 4-5 page report with clear information on the SNP profile of the sample(s) sent.

Taconic offers the following SNP Panels:

Mouse 1449 SNP Panel

  • Panel of 1,449 SNP markers selected to maximize genetic information across 15 inbred strains Ideal for background characterization of most commonly use mouse strains.
    • 129S6/SvEvTac
    • BALB/cAnNTac
    • BALB/JBomTac
    • BALB/ABomTac
    • C3H/HeNTac
    • C57BL/6NTac
    • C57BL/6JBomTac
    • CB17SC
    • CBSCBG
    • DBA/1JBomTac
    • DBA/2NTac
    • FVB/NTac
    • NOD/MrkTac
    • NOG
    • SJL/JCrNTac
  • Suitable for accelerated backcrossing or Speed Congenics

Mouse GenMon Panel

  • Panel of 96 SNP Markers suitable for quality control monitoring of the genetic background of inbred strains or lines to detect undesired genetic contamination or to assess genetic variability in some outbred stocks of mice
  • Not suitable for accelerated backcrossing or Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL) analysis

Mouse B6 SNP Panel

  • Panel of 96 SNP markers selected to differentiate C57BL/6 sub-strains
  • Ideal to differentiate C57BL/6N from C57BL/6J need at least 99.9% in C57BL/6 background. If in doubt it is better to do first the 1449 SNP Panel and verify that it really is in a C57BL/6 background

Rat GenMon Panel

  • Panel of 96 SNP markers suitable for routine quality control of inbred rat strains or for assessing genetic variability in certain outbred rat stocks
  • Not suitable for accelerated backcrossing or Quantitative Trait Loci (QTL) analysis
