Since completion of the genome sequencing of a variety of organisms including mice and humans, a main task has become elucidating the functions of the sequenced genomes. For this purpose, biomedical researchers inactivate particular genes of interest in mice and analyze the phenotypes of the mutated animals, thereby revealing the functions of the inactivated genes. We will devote our efforts to the investigation on the higher cognitive functions in the immune and nervous systems in mice and humans. Under Confirmation
