Laboratory mouse. Technician holding a laboratory mouse Mus musculus. Mice are used for various types of research. They are used for genetic manipulations, safety tests on chemicals and drugs and for the study of infectious organisms. Mice are used as experimental animals because they produce a large litter of young several times a year. Also their size and relative genetic similarity to humans is ideal for medical and toxicity tests.
