Organism ImageRattus norvegicus (Norway rat)

The Norway rat is an important experimental model for many human disease, including arthritis, hypertension, diabetes, and cardiovascular diseases.

Lineage: Eukaryota[8697]; Metazoa[4225]; Chordata[2098]; Craniata[2075]; Vertebrata[2075]; Euteleostomi[2058]; Mammalia[637]; Eutheria[463]; Euarchontoglires[180]; Glires[114]; Rodentia[108]; Myomorpha[62]; Muroidea[59]; Muridae[28]; Murinae[19]; Rattus[2]; Rattus norvegicus[1]
Although considered a pest and major health threat by many, the rat is an important model organism to help understand human physiology and disease.
