Add the Genotype of Multiple Mice

 

If you receive genotyping results after weaning, for example, you can easily add genotypes to groups of mice at the same time as follows:

  1. Go to the Mouse List 
  2. Select the check boxes of all mice to be genotyped
    • You can click on the DOB column  to sort with the youngest mice at the top, allowing you to quickly pull up the newly weaned ungenotyped mice
    • You can open the filter, under the empty "Genotype" box, selet "Exact Match" check box and click Filter, allow you to pull up all the mice with a blank genotype"
  3. Click Edit Mice

You will be taken to the Group Edit Mice page and here are a few options to adding the genotypes:

Option 1: All of the selected mice have the same genotype

If all of the selected mice have the same genotype, follow these steps:

  1. Select the Gene from the drop down
  2. Select the associated Allele from the drop down
  3. Click Add --- this will update the Genotype Box
  4. Select all check boxes in the Mouse list table
  5. Click Save+Stay --- the genotype column will be filled in with the contents of the genotype box
    Repeat steps 1-5 if there are more than one genes to track


Option 2: Subsets of the selected mice have the same genotype

If the alleleic variation is the same for only a subset of the selected mice, follow these steps:

  1. Select the Gene from the drop down
  2. Select the associated Allele from the drop down (e.g. +)
  3. Click Add --- this will update the Genotype Box
  4. Select the check boxes in the Mouse table of all mice that have this genotype only
  5. Click Save+Stay  --- the genotype column will be filled in with the contents of the genotype box for the selected pups
  6. Select the same Gene from the drop down
  7. Select the next Allele from the drop down (e.g. -)
  8. Click Add --- this will update the Genotype Box
  9. Select the check boxes of all mice that have this genotype only
  10. Click Save+Stay --- the genotype column will be filled in with the contents of the genotype box
    Repeat for as many different genotypes as needed

 

Option 3: Compounding genotypes

If you are tracking multiple genes and the allelic variations differ for each gene across all selected, follow these steps:

  1. Execute all steps in Option 2 above to add the first gene selecting only the mice with this genetic variation
  2. Repeat all steps for the next Gene in question selecting only the mice with this second genetic variation regardless of the first gene inputted
  3. You will notice that as you add the second gene, the Genotype column in the Mouse table will simply compound as you add the additional genes of interest
