The Darwinian postulate, that all animals are evolutionarily related, has been massively supported by genetic and other biological experiments over the past several decades showing the conservation of gene structure and some functions in even distantly related species. This opens opportunities for improving the quality of animal models of human biology, for the purpose of biomedical research. Some of the expermaints that may become possible in the foreseeable future, raise ethical issues that require vigilance from the scientific community and from research regulators. These topics were recently summarised in a report from the Academy of Medical Sciences ( http://www.acmedsci.ac.uk/ p99puid222.html )
