Abstract: Тhe life expectancy of inbred and outbreed rabbits irradiated with gamma rays at a dose 4 Gy has been studied. It was found that the average life duration of inbred groups is less than that of the outbreed animals, as the differences were statistically significant. It was viewed that the animal produced from inbred strains and inbred lines are at risk from the harmful effects of environmental factors (specific gamma-radiation) compared to heterozygous hybrids and animals from populations with high heterogeneity.
