What does a mouse or rat need to do to get a little R-E-S-P-E-C-T around here?! Well fear not, furry friends, your squeaks have been heard! Rodent Respect is a stylistic online collaboration between an artist and scientists to pay respect to rodents used in scientific research. In addition to featuring a number of random musings on the subject under the “Scientists Speak About Rodents” section, the website also links to resources about the ethical treatment of laboratory rodents. The majority of the site is composed of an eclectic mix of rodent tidbits and miscellany, such as “fun plague facts” and “rodent folklore.” It’s a fun site to explore, even if some of the features are not directly related to rodent research, and it serves as a nice introduction to anybody beginning to work with mice or rats in the laboratory.
