Martin et al. advance the use of the Collaborative Cross (CC) for studying adaptive immune responses. They demonstrate that the CC better models variation in T cell responses seen in outbred mice and humans and that it can uncover genes linked to generation of qualitatively distinct memory cells following infection.
