5 editions published in 1996 in English and Undetermined and held by 85 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
(Producer) Over the past century the mouse has risen to become the premier mammalian model organism -- the stand-in for the human. Because of its short generation time and its striking genetic similarities to humans, scientists can use the mouse to study aspects of mammalian biology that have direct and immediate implications for human health. Professor Shirley Tilghman, a dynamic teacher and researcher, leads viewers through very recent advances in the study of the mouse, giving special emphasis to recent breakthroughs in the study of obesity and growth control. The program illustrates how the Human Genome Project has made possible the identification of genes that function very similarly in mice and humans. By describing the search for a gene in mice that controls weight gain, Professor Tilghman demonstrates the means by which scientists can now generate mice with mutations in specific genes, using as an example a gene that was mutated through painstaking experiments in her laboratory at Princeton University. The mutant mice were larger than normal and mimicked a human disorder called Beckwith-Wiedemann syndrome
