The pace of biological investigation has been greatly accelerated by technologies that permit comprehensive inventory of gene expression under diverse conditions. We have been developing and using approaches to understand gene function that are based on functional assessments of gene activity, using automated expression cloning followed by gene knockdown using shRNA or by gene knockout. Some recent developments in expression screens and methods to expedite the formation of targeted mutations in mice are discussed. A resource for large scale quantitative profiling of mRNA abundance is also described.
