To two the public your mouse repository to acquisition of GM mouse lines still not widely accessible to researchers – – in the two decades since recombinant DNA technology in first used to line on mice in which particular genes who disturb, or turned down as mice have produce one of the most powerful tools available the functional the function create by genes be used as animal models human diseases. Researchers have generated knockout mice as useful models of human diseases such as cancer, heart disease , neurological disorders and even obesity are.
