Comments and References:

Sequence entries that are identified only by the English vernacular name "rats" are classified with "Rattus sp." Many of these entries are journal-scanned sequences from articles in which the scientific name of the organism does not appear (this is an editorial policy for model organisms in some journals). Most of these sequences are likely to be from Rattus norvegicus.
