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[2414]; Metazoa[915]; Chordata[354]; Craniata[348]; Vertebrata[348]; Euteleostomi[340]; Mammalia[136]; Eutheria[131]; Euarchontoglires[68]; Glires[35]; Rodentia[33]; Sciurognathi[26]; Muroidea[17]; Muridae[7]; Murinae[7]; 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.
