Nuclease-based technologies have been developed that enable targeting of specific DNA sequences directly in the zygote. These approaches provide an opportunity to modify the genomes of inbred mice, and allow the removal of strain-specific mutations that confound phenotypic assessment. One such mutation is the Cdh23 ahl allele, present in several commonly(More)
Determining the genetic bases of age-related disease remains a major challenge requiring a spectrum of approaches from human and clinical genetics to the utilization of model organism studies. Here we report a large-scale genetic screen in mice employing a phenotype-driven discovery platform to identify mutations resulting in age-related disease, both(More)
The application of CRISPR/Cas9 technology has revolutionised genetics by greatly enhancing the efficacy of genome editing in the early embryo. Furthermore, the system has enabled the generation of allele types previously incompatible with in vivo mutagenesis. Despite its versatility and ease of implementation, CRISPR/Cas9 editing outcome is unpredictable(More)
An area of major concern in considering increased coal production and utilization is the health and safety of increased numbers of workers who mine, process, or utilize coal. Hazards related to mining activities in the past have been especially serious, resulting in many mine related accidental deaths, disabling injuries, and disability and death from(More)
in the two unexposed control birds. This may be indicative of antigen or viral exposure or an abortive infection. These data show that the TG-D5 chickens did not efficiently transmit infection to birds housed with them, but the specific mechanism underlying this effect is not known. Polymerase decoys may disrupt replication by direct binding to poly-merase(More)
