Research on basic mechanisms that regulate pancreatic organogenesis may help to define molecular pathways involved in the development of pancreatic diseases. In this regard, animal models have become an essential part of advancing our research efforts. There are several animal models which have been utilized specifically for normal pancreatic development and disease pathobiology. Here we highlight some important websites that serve as valuable resources for research in model organisms. In particular, websites containing information on mouse, rat, swine, zebra fish and xenopus models will be discussed due to their direct utility in pancreatic research. Copyright (c) 2006 S.
