... both gene-driven (reverse genetics) and phenotype-driven (forward genetics) approaches. A high-efficiency ENU approach results in approx. 25 functional mutations per genome; most of these will result in hypomorphic alleles. Our group has recently begun using ENU mutagenesis as a tool for understanding...
