This Week in PLOS

In PLOS Genetics, researchers from Australia's Monash University explore the process of genetic compensation in zebrafish model organisms with mutations affecting a highly conserved skeletal actin component gene implicated in a neuromuscular condition called nemaline myopathy in humans. Using PCR analyses and other approaches, the team tracked expression in zebrafish carrying actc1b gene mutations generated by chemical mutagenesis.
