The characterization of gene function typically includes a detailed analysis of loss-of-function alleles. In model plants, such as Arabidopsis thaliana and rice, sequence-indexed insertion collections provide a large resource of potential null alleles that can often be easily accessed through convenient Web sites (e.g., http://signal.salk.edu ). They are, however, not available for nonmodel species, require stacking for knockout of redundant homologs, and do not easily allow for partial or...[Show more]
