This type of genetic screening is used to find and identify all the genes involved in a trait. In some organisms, such as yeast and mice, it is possible to induce the deletion of a particular gene, creating what's known as a gene "knockout" - the laboratory origin of so-called " knockout mice " for further study.
In other words this process involves the creation of transgenic organisms that do not express a gene of interest. Alternative methods of reverse genetic research include the random induction of DNA deletions and subsequent selection for deletions in a gene of interest, as well as the application of RNA interference.
Main article: Gene therapy A mutation in a gene can cause encoded proteins and the cells that rely on those proteins to malfunction. Conditions related to gene mutations are called genetic disorders. However, altering a patient's genes can sometimes be used to treat or cure a disease as well.
The brightly coloured figures of the fluorescence in situ hybridisation appear very much like flattened dolly mixtures, and like those childhood candies, there are some sweeties which are very, very good and some which are a little tedious and you have to chew through to get back to the good ones. Having flicked through this book more than once I started to read it at the beginning!
The narrative is informal, yet informative. Refreshingly, genetics is begun from the perspective of chromosomes and not the usual rigmarole of nucleic acids moving through nucleosides into nucleotides and finishing at DNA. We are talking serious heredity here. The anecdotal style is unfamiliar and occasionally tedious but the stories do stay with you.
The contents are comprehensive and range from the genetic mapping of disease genes through to an impressively up-to-date chapter on human gene therapy. The requisite chapters on basic science are included but their position in the book is such that one is just beginning to wonder how something is achieved.
