New technique could alter field of mouse genetics

...function of all of those genes. The strategy is as systematic as the genome sequencing projects -- mutate each gene, observe the consequences, and investigate the molecular mechanisms. In the past two decades, only about 3,000 of the estimated 25,000 genes shared by mice and humans have been analyzed in detail,...
