The Isogenic Family of Strains and Their Derivatives

This family of strains includes inbred, segregating inbred, congenic, recombinant inbred, recombinant congenic, consomic, and F1 hybrid strains, as well as monozygous twins and genetic clones. These latter two classes are not discussed here. The most important feature of this class of strains is that at least two individuals, and usually many more, are genetically identical or nearly identical. All of these strains, with the exception of twins and clones, are based on inbred strains discussed below.
