A strainin reference to rodents, is a group in which all members are as nearly as possible genetically identical. In rats, this is accomplished through inbreeding. By having this kind of population, it is possible to conduct experiments on the roles of genes, or conduct experiments that exclude variations in genetics as a factor.
I have bred them where I need them. So I will not be pairing them up again. I was going to keep a pure line of them going but I am no longer needing it. So he thinks breeding the way I did was just perfect! I will keep this page up as a reference for all my past work. They are an out cross to bring healthy blood into my dumbos.
The lab tek kept 6 groups of these rats. All were inbred for 40 generations that was group 1. This introduced a new color into the rat community as we never had the Dark Agouti before. Those are only at Isbn and my rattery at this time.
S has them to our knowledge.
Let me add that I am not hook line and sinker accepting this blood and breeding it right into my lines. I am in the testing phase.
Almost always the albinos will be what I offer you though as I prefer to adopt out the pink eyed and keep the black or Agouti. I do not have any other standard eared rats to offer. This is an out cross line that I am going to be working with starting in They have been genetically engineered in a laboratory.
I got them from my close friend Terren at Isbn Rattery who I am mentoring. The rats have had their genes mapped and documented since by the Harlan laboratory. On the SD side. This is a longer live expectancy than the pure SD lab line.
They have big litters of very sweet babies. To Agricultural Research Centre, Cambridge. These are almost black they are so dark and rich colored. Both lines which are obviously now bred together as one line, came with the paperwork containing all of their genetics and history.PETA’s investigations inside the laboratories of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of Utah revealed that mice and rats were given enormous tumors and painful, deadly illnesses.
Rats had holes drilled into their skulls for invasive brain experiments. The rats have had their genes mapped and documented since by the Harlan laboratory. On the SD side. This particular line is bred for longevity data and has an almost completely tumor free rate.
If rats are required older than 8 weeks, they will be transferred to the Research Facility holding room or requesting campus/institution to be aged there.

Approximately 95 percent of all laboratory animals are mice and rats. Reducing reliance on higher-order species, rodents have become the animal model of choice for biomedical researchers because their physiology and genetic make-up closely resembles that of people.
In addition, the RRRC performs a wide variety of fee-for-services designed to facilitate all aspects of rat-related research. The RRRC is located at the University of Missouri's Discovery Ridge Research Park and is supported by funding from the National Institutes of Health (P40 OD).
Research with rats  helped develop the antiretroviral drug cocktail that can successfully prevent the transmission of HIV from mother to child . Research with mice with “humanized” immune systems helped lead to the first prophylactic treatment for HIV in , Truvada .
