Special Issue:
Xenopus: Advances and Emerging Technologies


Model animals are crucial to biomedical research. Among the commonly used model animals, the amphibian Xenopus has had tremendous impact because of its unique experimental advantages, cost effectiveness, and close evolutionary relationship with mammals as a tetrapod.

CRISPr/Cas (clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats-assiciated) technologies can be employed to induce targeted genetic mutation. In back-to-back articles published in genesis, Blitz et al. and Nakayama et al. each report CRISPr/Cas targeted transgenesis of Xenopus tropicalis pigmentation and eye development genes.
