The mouse species studied is the house mouse, Mus musculus, well-known as a model organism for laboratory studies. It was the first non-human mammal to have its genome sequenced. Most laboratory strains of mouse are inbred, so that their gene pools have no variation and their genomes are effectively haploid.
