Rodent Reference Information

Rodent Reference Information provides information on the biology and genetics of rats and mice.

This information, available from the drop down "Rodent Reference Information" tab, provides details of different strains, biological data (birth weights, litter sizes etc), growth rates, histocompatability of different strains and allelic profiles at genetic markers. The site also contains information on different animal models (via the Animal Models drop down tab).

The resource as developed by the Australian Animal Resource Centre. Copyright is retained by that organisation.

It will be of interest to those involved in the breeding, care or use of rodents in research.
