Species-specific description: Using "recombinant adeno-associated virus–mediated (rAAV-mediated) gene targeting and somatic cell nuclear transfer (SCNT)", White et al. (2018) created mini pigs with a deletion of exon 42 of the NF1 gene, as a model of NF1 in humans. These animals are genetically-modified organisms (GMO).
