Genetic conceptualizations and procedures have become integral to the conduct of research across the spectrum of life sciences, including gerontology, even when genetics is not the focus of inquiry. Among the research tools thus provided, one of the most basic is that of inbred strains. A close approximation to genetic uniformity is achieved by a sufficient number of successive generations of matings of relatives, and, once this near-uniformity is attained, the members of an inbred strain… CONTINUE READING
