A website to be added to the list of sites employing clever acronyms, eMICE (which stands for electronic Models Information, Communication, and Education) is an online resource by the National Cancer Institute that seeks to inform the general public, scientists, and physicians about animal models used in cancer research. Information about various aspects of animal models is presented, including general information, model acquisition and generating and characterizing models. Site visitors can read about not only mice as cancer models, but also rats, hamsters, rabbits, and fish. Users can also search for animal models that are used for organ-specific cancers. (For this search, users are directed to the external cancer Models (caMOD) database.) While researchers and physicians may find the information on the site a bit elementary, eMICE does a nice job in providing general information about animals’ roles in cancer research.
