Responding to criticism regarding Séralini’s study for using
Sprague Dawley rats

Scientists have bred many strains or “lines” of rats specifically for experimentation. Most are derived from the albino Wistar rat, which is still widely used. Other common strains are the Sprague Dawley, Fischer 344,[2] Holtzman albino strains, the Long-Evans, and Lister black hooded rats. Inbred strains are also available but are not as commonly used as inbred mice.
