Advances in molecular biology that have allowed the cloning and transfer of genetic material both wlthm and between organisms have become a key tool in molecular blology Molecular blologlcal techniques have allowed the role of gene function to be addressed from the cellular level in vitro and to be extended to the whole organism in vivo by the use of transgemc techniques in both plants and animals The major mammalian species in which transgemc techniques have been applied 1s the mouse
