Diet-Induced Obesity Models

Diets high in fat have been attributed to a host of diseases, including obesity, metabolic and inflammatory diseases. The Jackson Laboratory maintains an inventory of diet-induced obesity (DIO) models, and can place any strain on any fully customized diet so that your mice are ready when you need them.
