The utilization of homologous recombination in embryonic stem cells as a means to generate mice carrying pre-determined modifications of genomic sequences has revolutionized the study of developmental biology. Recognizing the potential efficiencies that can be obtained by high-throughput production at centralized technology centers, a number of large-scale efforts for generating mice with targeted mutations have been funded. These programs are reaching fruition, and a variety of libraries of embryonic stem cells with defined mutations are now available.
