Objective: ExpoSEED aims to integrate forward and reverse genetic
approaches to dissect the molecular mechanisms that control seed/kernel (hereafter referred as seed) yield in model species and to transfer the acquired knowledge to selected crops as legumes and cereals.
Scientists from Europe and the US discuss coronavirus and rhabdovirus reverse genetics
, reverse genetic
tools to study the hepatitis C virus, calcivirus genetics, modification of the measles virus and application to pathogenesis studies, bunyavirus reverse genetics
and applications to studying interactions with host cells, using reverse genetics
to improve influenza vaccines, Bluetongue virus reverse genetics
, genetic modification in mammalian orthoreoviruses, and reverse genetics
Unlike model organisms with large collections of mutant strains to draw upon, the lack of reverse genetic
tools in the mosquito has made it is very difficult to assign functions to genes in a definitive manner," Adelman said.
Several reverse genetic
strategies have been successfully used for functional genomics in animal and plant species including chemical mutagenesis (3).
cells destroyed by Alzheimer's disease, reverse genetic
defects such as cystic fibrosis, and re-grow severed spinal cords.
The editors (both of the Centre for Crop Genetic Improvement, Rothamsted Research, UK) believe that the production and characterization of transgenic plants is a powerful reverse genetic
strategy that can be used in cereals research to ascribe function to defined DNA sequences.
This could someday be used to reverse genetic
defects, cure disease or delay aging.
Whether the deletion in the ORF of NSP 3b is involved in pathobiologic changes should be assessed with reverse genetic
The upshot of all this, apparently, is that Brian Boru is "tail-male and tail-female to near reverse genetic
1981), and targeted gene disruption (Rong and Golic 2000) have allowed researchers to conduct molecular and reverse genetic
Now, using what is called a reverse genetic
approach, he and his colleagues have been able to demonstrate the protein is exactly what they thought.
