NEW COMPLEXITIES IN RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN GENE MUTATION AND EMBRYO DEVELOPMENT

A large-scale study of DMDD data [1] has shown that inactivating the same gene in mouse embryos that are virtually genetically identical can result in a wide range and severity of physical abnormalities. This suggests that the relationship between gene mutation and embryo development is more complex than previously thought. The article ‘Highly variable penetrance … Continue reading NEW COMPLEXITIES IN RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN GENE MUTATION AND EMBRYO DEVELOPMENT
