Rats and mice have played an essential role in studies and experiments. Laboratory rats and mice have provided a deeper understanding in human genetics and diseases. Since these laboratory animals are mammals they are the most frequent animals in research. They are low-cost, simply to maintain and breed rapidly making them even more prominent in research.
