Laboratory mice. Research scientist holding a mouse in the 'Mouse House' at Oak Ridge National Laboratory. This facility is home to the world's largest collection of mutant strains of mice. Scientists are able to determine the function of genes by observing the effects of gene mutations on animals. This research has implications for the understanding of the human genome, which may be applied in treating genetic diseases. Oak Ridge National Laboratory is in Tennessee, USA.
