Mice are the archetypal laboratory animal.
Scientists have created a ‘knockout rat' that can be used to model certain diseases in the same way as mice.

The first list of its kind for science, The Eureka 100: The Science List by The Times last week aimed to identify the 100 most important people in British science.
