Gene targeting (homologous recombination between DNA sequences residing in the chromosome and newly introduced DNA sequences) in pluripotent, mouse embryo-derived stem (ES) cells promises to provide the means to generate mice of any desired genotype. This review describes some of the background and current advances of gene targeting in mouse ES cells. © 1989.
