Creating and Maintaining Transgenic and Knockout Rat Models

The rat model has long been a model favored by physiologists, pharmacologists, and neuroscientists due to the many physiological similarities with humans. Its larger size allows for certain experiments and surgical procedures as well as the monitoring of physiological parameters which are not achievable using mouse models. In some cases the knockout rat model offers a better clinical characterization approach.
