This volume explores techniques used to study and experiment with Xenopus in order to model or understand human disease. The chapters in this book cover topics such as implementation of CRISPR/Cas9 and TALEN in Xenopus from the design stage up to the genotyping stage; methods to explore generation of knock-in animals; cancer modelling and in vivo screening of congenital heart disease; electroporation; and phenotyping at the organismal level, cellular level, and proteome level. Written in the highly successful Methods in Molecular Biology series format, chapters include introductions to their respective topics, lists of the necessary materials and reagents, step-by-step, readily reproducible laboratory protocols, and tips on troubleshooting and avoiding known pitfalls.
