The mouse is the most popular mammalian model for the study of human disease and normative biology.

Animal models are essential tools in medical research because they allow researchers the opportunity to systematically investigate issues within a defined biological system. The mouse is the most popular mammalian model for the study of human disease and normative biology, because their genomes are highly conserved. And since 99 % of the human genes in the mouse have counterparts, cloning of a gene in one species, often leads to the cloning of the corresponding gene in the other.

Study Reveals Genetic variation in laboratory mice varied than previously assumedA joint study by scientists at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and The Jackson Laboratory in Bar Harbor, has found that genetic variation in the most widely used strains of laboratory mice is much greater than previously thought.Was experienced clinicians in the Symptoms and signs the different phases of CML much, but so far they have only few clues about what actually causes the disease progresses.
