 A gene knockout is a deletion mutation where part of a gene is missing, making the wildtype nonfunctional. Gene knockout is a technique often used when producing transgenic animals, as the removal of a gene can give important information about it's function. Gene knockoutis also often used to producetransgenic mice with knockouts of homologs of genes associated with human disease that act as models for humans diseases.Cite error: Invalid <ref> tag; name cannot be a simple integer.
