Our group has developed a novel technique to modify the mitochondrial genome. Past work on this project has included synthesizing the vectors and developing transformation procedures. In this study, we continued to develop the transformation procedures, and designed and tested a PCR-based technique to assay for transformation. If successful, this could provide a tool to study many major diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and diabetes as well as provide a possible mechanism for mitochondrial gene therapy.
