Is it possible to elicit transient gene silencing by using virus induced gene silencing (VIGS) in plants?
I am looking for a molecular tech' which could result in transient gene silencing in plants. The objective is to not make transgenic plant, but to use these tech' to silence a gene of interest for a ...
If a plant, say a ficus or a teak, as a sapling were exposed to radiation, and a tree of the same species were present at the same distance, which of the two would be more likely to mutate?
I'm trying to estimate the penetrance of a disease in a population given a rare spontaneous mutation that confers predisposition in an autosomal dominant manner. Given that the mutation is ...
How does TILLING (Targeting Induced Local Lesions in Genomes) work? What is needed to perform a TILLING experiment, and what kind of information can we get out of it?
