Background Laboratory rats such as the Sprague-Dawley (SD) rats are an important model for biomedical studies in relation to human physiological or pathogenic processes. Here we report the first catalog of microbial genes in fecal samples from Sprague-Dawley rats. Findings The catalog was established using 98 fecal samples from 49 SD rats, divided in 7 experimental groups, and collected at different time points 30 days apart. The established gene catalog comprises 5,130,167 non-redundant… CONTINUE READING
