Establishment of an yeast experimental system for human gene functions -Construction of an huge chromosome vector that can accommodate many external genes-
Genes & Genetic Systems
- We established an yeast experimental system for human gene functions.
- We constructed an huge chromosome vector that can accommodate many external genes and succeeded in expression of human genes.
- This “humanoid yeast” would also be available for drug screening and could reduce the number of experimental animals.
