DR. NORMAN DAVIDSON: In order for a gene to be isolated and characterized by recombinant DNA methods, characteristics or phenotypes must be known. Thus, while there are no methods of cloning for an unknown gene, there are many published examples of methods of cloning for a gene coding for a protein that is abundantly, or moderately abundantly, expressed in a given tissue type.
