General description

Highly skilled investigators in gene targeting and mouse genetics describe their best techniques for the design of targeting constructs and for the analysis of the mouse phenotype. These include embryo transplantation, in vitro embryonic stem cell differentiation, creation of aggregation chimeras, mouse pathology, embryo cryopreservation, and transplantation. State-of-the-art and highly practical, it constitutes an invaluable source of readily reproducible techniques for genetic researchers today.
