Novosibirsk Scientists to Set up Monument to Laboratory Rodent

A laboratory rodent monument will be set up in the Novosibirsk Campus, near the Cytology and Genetics Institute of the Siberian Branch of the Russian Academy of Science.

      As the institute informs, the height of the bronze cast monument together with its pedestal will make more than two meters. According to the authors’ concept, the mouse will be holding knitting pins in its paws as if knitting a DNA chain. The mouse will be wearing glasses as the science symbol. Near the monument there will be set up information stands telling about achievements of biology and genetics.

      According to the estimates of scientists, the monument will cost around 1.7 million rubles. The Institute is expecting sponsor's help in this issue. Scientists plan to have the bronze rodent set up by the middle of this summer. They do not rule out the possibility for other laboratory animals, such as rats, dogs, rabbits, monkeys and frogs to join the monument.
