The mouse has long been considered to be the premier mammalian model system for genetic research. Scientists have looked to the mouse because of its close genetic and physiological similarities to humans, as well as the ease with which its genome can be manipulated and analyzed.

Mouse models are available in a variety of unique inbred strains and genetically engineered mutants designed to study indications ranging from cancer and diabetes to alcoholism and even drug addiction.

Urine consists primarily of water, but also contains an assortment of inorganic salts and organic compounds, including proteins, hormones, and a wide range of metabolites. As a sterile, non-invasive biological fluid, urine is becoming a favored sample type for biomarker research. Not only is it being used to detect kidney disease, but scientists have begun to identify urine cancer biomarkers that can be used for early screening and monitoring.
