An Overview of Embryonic Stem Cells

... of research over the last 20 years. Specially, ES cells can be used to reconstitute early mouse embryos, forming the basis of genome manipulation technology used to produce hundreds of ‘knock out’ and ‘knock in’ transgenic animals for the investigation of gene expression and regulation in vivo. ...
