Does your gene need a background check? How genetic background impacts the analysis of mutations, genes, and evolution.
Trends in Genetics, no. 6 (2013): 358-366
The premise of genetic analysis is that a causal link exists between phenotypic and allelic variation. However, it has long been documented that mutant phenotypes are not a simple result of a single DNA lesion, but are instead due to interactions of the focal allele with other genes and the environment. Although an experimentally rigorous...更多
