Tour around 8000 mice

At MRC Harwell there are several rooms like this, each containing thousands of mice. 

At MRC Harwell scientists study mouse genetics to understand the relationship between genes and disease. They modify mice, adding and removing genes, and use the modified mice to understand the disease processes that occur when a gene goes wrong. This research leads to advances in medicine. MRC Harwell is one of a network of world-class institutions and houses around 30,000 mice.
