Rats are often superior to mice as model organisms, due to their physiology, responses to drugs, and performance during behavioral tests. Their larger size facilitates physiology experimentation, particularly when the studies require dissection, or isolation of specific cell types or specific organ structures. Rats are especially preferred for studies of cancers such as breast, prostate, and bone marrow metastases.
