The first step in the analysis of potentially transgenic mice is the characterizaton of their altered genotype. A strategy must be devised that allows easy and reliable discrimination between wild-type animals and those carrying additional transgenes or introduced targeted mutations. It is also necessary to demonstrate that the characteristics of the alteration are as desired.
