Gene targeting—the process of gene replacement by homologous recombination—is a very useful but typically inefficient technique (1). A general method for improving the efficiency of gene targeting would be valuable in many circumstances, as would the extension of this genetic tool to a broader range of organisms. Model experiments have demonstrated that a… CONTINUE READING
