Description of our model and application areas

This model was developed by Dr Long and Dr Evans in 1915. The LONG EVANS rat is the result of a cross between a female albino from the WISTAR Institute and a wild male (Rattus norvegicus) captured near Berkeley and offspring selection.

The LONG EVANS rat is small and resistant to oncogenesis. This strain is widely used in behavioral, learning, ageing (visual acuity less affected than that of albino strains), addiction – especially to alcohol – studies.
