US scientists overturn genetic inheritance rules in lab mice

Cookson, C,  Financial Times,  2019.

New gene drive technology that could revolutionise biology research has been demonstrated for the first time in mammals, after US scientists overturned the normal rules of genetic inheritance in laboratory mice.; ; Scientists at the University of California San Diego employed the technology to turn a group of lab mice white, using a complex DNA editing procedure that allowed a white-coat mutation to spread through successive generations of animals with unnatural speed.
