image The genome of the spontaneously hypertensive rat has been sequenced by scientists and could help understand causes of the disease in humans. The spontaneously hypertensive rat (SHR) strain is the most widely studied animal model of human hypertension. Research on this strain has identified many genomic regions that likely harbour genetic variants that are responsible for the hypertension phenotype, however without a complete sequence of the hyper...
