Abstract

A complete list of molecular components for immune system function is now available with the completion of the human and mouse genome sequences. However, identification and functional annotation of genes involved in immunological processes require a discovery methodology that can efficiently and broadly analyze the complex interplay of these components in vivo. Our recent experience indicates that genome-wide chemical mutagenesis in the mouse is an extremely powerful methodology for the identification of genes required for complex immunological processes.
