Milne The very essence of "doing genetics" is the isolation of mutants. Mutants allow us to look into a genome with 10,000-50,000 genes and identify those genes whose protein products participate in a given biological process. To paraphrase Leland Hartwell, who won the Nobel Prize on the day that we wrote these lines, the ability to identify the "right genes" by the "right mutants" is the surgical power of genetics. To understand the significance of this statement, we must understand that a given biological process may require hundreds of different proteins acting at various times and in various tissues during development.
