Laboratory mouse. Technician holding a laboratory mouse (Mus musculus) during an animal experiment. Mice 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 genetic similarity to humans are ideal for medical and toxicity tests.
