Origin: The Black Swiss outbred model was developed by Dr. Carl Hansen of the NIH Genetic Resource. N:NIH Swiss outbred mice were backcrossed to a C57BL/6N inbred background to generate a hybrid mouse heterozygous for the agouti locus. The mice were backcrossed ten generations (N10) to eliminate the agouti and albino alleles. Taconic received NTac:NIHBS litters in 1991. The mice were derived by caesarean in 1992 and rederived by embryo transfer in 2005.
