The house mouse (Mus musculus) is a common rodent that is distributed throughout the world. It has become a frequently used model for understanding human disease and development due to its small size, short life-cycle and rapid breeding cycle.

The mouse was the second mammal to have its genome sequenced. The mouse strain used for sequencing was C57BL/6J, which is the most widely used inbred strain. This strain is a permissive background for the expression of most mutations, but is resilient to many tumors.

C57BL/6J mice are susceptible to atherosclerosis, type 2 diabetes and diet-induced obesity. It also develops age-related hearing loss. 75% of the mouse genes are in 1:1 orthologous relationships to human genes and have most likely maintained their ancestral function in both species.

The reference proteome of Mus musculus is derived from the genome sequence of strain C57BL/6J that was published in 2009. The size of the genome is 2.6 Gb and it contains 20,210 predicted protein-coding genes.
