Leading experts provide timely and comprehensive information on methods for conditional mutagenesis in the mouse (part 1) and their application to model human physiology and pathophysiology (part 2). It illustrates how sophisticated genetic manipulations of the mouse genome are employed to model human diseases and to identify underlying molecular mechanisms. Finally the book considers the development of new drugs to treat them.
