The European rabbit is a species belonging to the Leporidae family and is represented by wild as well as domesticated animals. Although it has been hunted by humans for a long time, rabbits were domesticated only in the 5th century by French monks. Nowadays rabbits are kept as pets or food animals across the world. The rabbit is commonly used as a model organism in a wide range of disciplines, including embryology, ophthalmology, neurology, immunology, and especially in toxicology for testing consumer products.

The rabbit genome has 21 pairs of autosomes and two sex chromosomes containing 3.5 Gb with 27,000 protein-coding genes. The reference proteome is derived from the genome sequence submitted in 2009 to the EMBL/GenBank/DDBJ databases.
