Proper identification of animals plays an important role in research, whether animals are being used as experimental subjects, for breeding purposes, or as a source for tissues, cells, or fluids. Identification of animals links animal-specific information to experimental records, and facilitates communication between investigators, technicians, and animal care personnel. Specific procedures for marking or identifying individual rodents and rabbits are described in this unit.
