The animals used in research as experimental models are selected for genetic, anatomical and physiological similarities. Rodents are the most representative experimental model; to emphasize this statement mice are used due to human DNA similarity (According to The Jackson Laboratory over 95% of the mouse genome is similar to our own, making mouse genetic research particularly applicable to human disease), simplicity in procurement, handling and short lifespan [1-3].
The purpose of this information is to help investigators who pursue an economical and efficient research that still allows the achievement of the study goals [4-7] [...]View full article
