This book examines the revolutionary new technology of gene targeting, from its history to its potential application for the genetic treatment of human diseases. It begins with an introduction to the field and a description of the whole gene targeting spectrum. It continues with discussions in the following areas:
The molecular mechanisms of the homologous recombination reactions lying behind gene targeting technology
The application of gene targeting approaches to the problems of tripanosomatide biology and etiopathology
The concept of gene targeting on plant genes and its impact on plant genetic engineering
The current knowledge on mammalian development and physiology and its relationship to gene targeting technology
The application of gene targeting technology, as well as other genetic techniques, to the production of animal models for human diseases
The enzymatic complexes and components participating in natural bacterial DNA recombination and their potential application to gene targeting technology
The potential application of gene targeting for the genetic treatment of human diseases

We provide complimentary e-inspection copies of primary textbooks to instructors considering our books for course adoption.
Most VitalSource eBooks are available in a reflowable EPUB format which allows you to resize text to suit you and enables other accessibility features. Where the content of the eBook requires a specific layout, or contains maths or other special characters, the eBook will be available in PDF (PBK) format, which cannot be reflowed. For both formats the functionality available will depend on how you access the ebook (via Bookshelf Online in your browser or via the Bookshelf app on your PC or mobile device).
