OMIA:001926-9823 : Achondrogenesis, type II in Sus scrofa (pig)

In other species: taurine cattle

Categories: Skeleton phene (incl. short stature & teeth)

Links to possible relevant human trait(s) and/or gene(s) in OMIM: 200610 (trait) , 120140 (gene)

Mendelian trait/disorder: yes

Considered a defect: yes

Key variant known: no

Species-specific description: This is a CRISPR-engineered disorder, and is, therefore, a genetically-modified organism (GMO)

Genetic engineering: Yes - variants have been created artificially, e.g. by genetic engineering or gene editing
Have human generated variants been created, e.g. through genetic engineering and gene editing
