Mouse breeding at UCSF

A laboratory animal care technique performed to produce offspring of laboratory mice by pairing mice as mating pairs. Breeding methods include selective breeding, which is the systematic breeding of animals in order to change certain qualities in them, inbreeding, which is the breeding of genetically related mice, and strain breeding, which concentrates on a certain mouse and its offspring, usually involving moderate inbreeding.
