...labs will release mice like the glow in the dark ones (I think they put it in for recessive?) for sale, and mice that live twice as long etc, like they did for hairless?
Me too Megs....megzilla92 said:My dream career is to work in a genetics lab?
Labs genetically alter mice into different genetic strains. For example, one strain may have a weaker heart (used fr heart research etc), and another may be more vulnrable to a certain disease. Mice that Glow under UV was part of a stem cell research project. They planned it for only the brain stem cells to be effected, so that they could better observe how they work, but as it turns out, the stem cells in the brain and in the skin/hair folicals are extremely similarWillowDragon said:generally the mice in question are specifically bred to either carry, show or be suseptable to certain diseases, cancers and viruses etc...
