Part of the Current Topics in Microbiology and Immunology book series (CT MICROBIOLOGY, volume 122)


Recombinant inbred strains were originally described by Bailey (1971) as “an aid to finding identity, linkage, and function of histocompatibility and other genes”. This assumption has proven to be correct and many genes involved in the susceptibility to carcinogenesis and infectious diseases have been discovered through use of various recombinant inbred strains.
