Lemna gibba is a rapidly growing aquatic monocot, one of the smallest flowering plants. Lemna growth assays are used to evaluate the toxicity of chemicals to plants in ecotoxicology. Because it can be grown . leveraging non-mammalian models for developmental neurotoxicity testing In order to highlight the use of non-mammalian models for developmental neurotoxicity testing, Neurotoxicology and Teratology is organizing a Special Issue focused on the theme of “Leveraging Non-Mammalian Models for Developmental Neurotoxicity Testing”.

    Brain Aging: Models, Methods, and Mechanisms offers a selective overview of the research in this rapidly expanding field. A valuable resource for new and established investigators of the aging brain, this volume reviews critical studies of brain aging in new animal models, as well as advances in brain imaging techniques that permit Format: Hardcover.

To serve as a model for ageing research, an animal must have a sequenced genome that allows the scientific community to study specific genes and design strategies to manipulate them.

Animals as Models. Nell Kriesberg Division of Multidisciplinary Studies North Carolina State University. Introduction: the idea of a model. As noted in Section One Tutorial One, animals have been used as stand-ins for human beings since ancient times: as our investigative tools have become more refined, our ideas about models and their uses have also evolved.

TWENTY-THREE years ago, in an article in Science magazine, we speculated that yeast might be the ideal experimental organism for modern biology.

We argued that the amalgam of recombinant DNA technology and classical biochemistry and genetics had created a revolution that gave biologists access to an array of new methods for connecting proteins and genes with their roles in the biology of an Cited by: RODENT MODELS OF AGING.

The laboratory mouse and rat are common models for the study of aging and age-related diseases. The wealth of background knowledge, convenience of use, capacity to regulate environmental factors, genetic manipulability, and expense have led to an explosion of aging-related research focused on these models.
