Government Reference Publication

Excerpt: Agroup of NIEHS scientists has recently perfected a new in vivo gene modification technique that enables researchers to quickly generate site-directed mutations onto specific regions of the yeast genome without leaving behind foreign DNA. The new technique is transforming the way genetic researchers analyze how genes function and respond to human disease and environmental influences. The research team is composed of Michael Resnick, head of the institutes Chromosome Stability Group, postdoctoral fellow Francesca Storici, and former group member L. Kevin Lewis, now an assistant professor of biochemistry at Southwest Texas State University in San Marcos. With encouragement from her colleagues, Storici?who hails from Trieste, Italy, where she conducted research at the International Centre for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology?christened the new technique ?Delitto Perfetto,? a Italian term that means perfect deletion and is also idiomatic for perfect murder. Just as the perpetrator of the perfect murder leaves no clues behind, this novel gene modification technique leaves no trace of the foreign DNA first introduced to engineer the desired genetic changes.
