The laboratory mouse or lab mouse is a small mammal of the order Rodentia which is bred and used for scientific research. Laboratory mice are usually of the species Mus musculus.
Mice in laboratories have lived much longer than wild mice with some studies recording normal mice living up to 4 years. Mutated mice bred in captivity have lived beyond four years with the longest life of a mouse being record at just short of 5 years.
most often of the species Mus musculus, or house mouse—are biomedical swiss army knives, with genomes that are easily manipulated for genetic studies. The physiology of the human body, however, is more closely mimicked in Rattus norvegicus, or the Norway rat, and its various strains.
