Gene targeting by homologous recombination is a genetic tool that permits modification of cellular genes in a precise and predetermined fashion. The methodologies that are currently available permit gene targeting at high efficiency and fidelity. New developments promise large-scale modification of the mammalian genome using these techniques.
