Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


In addition to hosting and developing genetically derived rat models simulating diseases in humans, the investigators at the Israeli Rat Genome Center have concentrated part of their efforts on performing independent genome research using their rat models, aiming to elucidate the genetic basis of complex diseases.Their focus has been on the investigation of the genetic basis of salt-sensitive hypertension using the Sabra rat model of salt sensitive hypertention and of type 2 diet-induced diabetes using the Cohen rat model of type 2 diet-induced diabetes (quote from article).
