subtilis 168, it was decided to inactivate the aprE gene of this bacterium encoding one of the major extracellular alkaline serine proteases, Subtilisin E, by site directed mutation of this gene using homologous recombination techniques.
The aim of the present study was the inactivation of aprE gene using site directed mutation at pro-sequence region.
They provide students and practitioners the groundwork, including articles on directed mutation
, algebraic structures as measures of comparison, the design of fuzzy models through particle swarm optimization, and Bayesian methodologies for estimating the uncertainty of decisions in safety-critical systems.
Cell shape changes influence gene expression" [sup.2] and, possibly related to such expression, responsively directed mutation
. Such changes and influences could very well be a manifestation of the adaptive process to maintain or continually re-establish a genomic and cellular stability of force through a repeated generation of completing force configurations.
The last of these essays, "Between Language and Science: The Question of Directed Mutation
in Molecular Genetics," is a fascinating look at the linguistic construction of the dichotomy between "random" and "purposive," and how the application of these terms to genetic variation may have obscured a far more complex picture of evolution than the ones we currently entertain.
It's impossible for now to completely rule out the possibility that some degree of directed mutation
occurs in nature, says Bruce R.

Perhaps the most conspicuous of these is the nature of the directed mutation
It is also important to note that the change in genetic make-up resulting from directed mutations is target-oriented and result-oriented.

Even assuming directed mutations
with an epigenetic basis do indeed occur, there remains the problem of passing these onto the next generation.
