 Hello Sailor (ship rat intro. page)
The name "Ship Rat" is a little misleading, since Rattus norvegicus also frequently travel by ship: but Rattus rattus are better suited to it, especially in the days of wooden ships, sparse provisions and long voyages, as they require very little food and water.
In the days when sailors slept in open hammocks, ship rats were notorious for creeping up on them in the night and attempting to unscrew their toenails (the smell of human feet sends their grooming behaviour into overdrive).
C, most of the traditional European idea of the ferocious rat is based on Rattus rattus, not on poor little fubsy inoffensive Rattus norvegicus.

What marked them out was the brilliance with which they harnessed this to strongly melodic songs, technically innovative playing (check out the keyboards on Down in the Sewer), and a gift for striking phrases delivered in Hugh Cornwell's sneering drawl (need anyone ask why they used the word 'charabanc' in Peaches?).
In Rattus Norvegicus, they achieved the perfect synthesis of violent, chauvinistic politically-incorrect ugliness with melody and musicianship, leaving listeners captivated but uncomfortable for decades to come.

The HGP initially adopted five model organisms to have their DNA sequenced: the bacterium Escherichia coli, the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the roundworm Caenorhabditis elegans, the fruitfly Drosophila melanogaster, and the laboratory mouse Mus musculus.
Subsequently, the HGP supported the sequencing of additional organisms, including the rat Rattus norvegicus, the roundworm Caenorhabditis briggsae, and the fruitfly Drosophila pseudoobscura.
In December 2002, a study comparing the human genome sequence with the mouse genome sequence found that 99% of human genes have a counterpart in mice, even though the two mammals diverged from a common ancestor more than 75 million years ago.

 Rattus Rattus
Short description/annotation: Rattus Rattus combines Peter Rose’s latest poetry with almost 100 poems from his first three collections, which have made him one of the most individual voices in Australian poetry.
His voice, in the new poems that open Rattus Rattus, evinces a new opennness and intimacy, while still encapsulating in individual and arresting forms the tenuousness of things, the fragility of bonds, and metaphysical estrangement.
Elsewhere, in the best-selling memoir Rose Boys, Peter Rose has written about family and the difficulties that afflicted one celebrated Australian family, so it will be fascinating for readers unfamiliar with his poetry to encounter the memoirist in a different guise.
