The Promise of Muta-genomics
Joseph H. Nadeau considers the feasibility of developing large-scale mouse
mutagenesis surveys
  

In the Literature.


Can mutagenesis studies in the mouse become large-scale surveys just as certain aspects of genetics have been scaled for genomics? Joseph H. Nadeau asks this question in a recent commentary in Mammalian Genome. If the answer is yes, he argues, then these mutagenized mice are a potentially rich resource of new models of human disease. His commentary considers the opportunities and challenges of developing large-scale mutagenesis and efficiently assembling comprehensive phenotyping programs.
