Gene targeting is the process of altering a specific sequence or gene at its location in a genome. Potential modifications include deletion, insertion or replacement of endogenous sequence with alternative sequences. Targeting can be achieved by homologous recombination in some organisms (notably, mice), or with site-directed genome editing nucleases.
