The laboratory mouse is a major model organism for basic mammalian biology, human disease, and genome evolution.

Lineage: Eukaryota[10856]; Metazoa[5115]; Chordata[2487]; Craniata[2464]; Vertebrata[2464]; Euteleostomi[2443]; Mammalia[687]; Eutheria[513]; Euarchontoglires[207]; Glires[121]; Rodentia[115]; Myomorpha[65]; Muroidea[62]; Muridae[28]; Murinae[19]; Mus[6]; Mus[4]; Mus musculus[1]
The mouse is one of the major organisms for modeling human disease and comparative genome analysis. There are over 450 inbred strains of mice, providing a wealth of different genotypes and phenotypes for genetic and other studies. In addition, thousands of spontaneous, radiation- or chemically-induced, and transgenic mutants provide potential models More...
