Targeted gene deletions in C. elegans using transposon excision

“Targeted gene deletions in C. elegans using transposon excision” is now available in advance online publication form at Nature Methods.

Even after 40 years of intense genetics in the model system C. elegans, a large majority of genes have not yet been disabled by deletion. Although targeted deletions have been possible in flies and mice for years, the technology has been elusive in worms.
