How do you study humans without studying humans? With mice, of course! These living test tubes closely mimic the genetic makeup of humans—95 percent close, in fact. And their small size and short gestation period make them ideal models for studying human disease. But in research, the garden-variety rodent doesn’t make the cut. Technological advances […]
