Hamster Genetics

For an excellent introduction to Genetics with an emphasis on hamsters, please refer to the extremely comprehensive and detailed webpages produced by the River Road Hamstery (now only accessible via the Wayback Machine internet archive).This site covers the basic biology involved as well as going into some depth about which genes combine to give particular coat types, colours and patterns in Syrian hamsters.
