THE INITIAL WORK WILL BE DONE WITH RABBITS BUT EVENTUALLY MULTIPLE COPIES OF MANY LAB- ORATORY, DOMESTIC LIVESTOCK AND ENDANGERED SPECIES IS ANTICIPATED. TWO METHODS WILLATTEM1) USING CHEMICAL AND/O ELECTRICAL TREATMENT TO CAUSE OOCYTE-CELL FUSIONS 2) BY INDUCING OOCYTE DIPLOIDY WI CYTOCHALISIN B OR IRDIATED SPERM. THESE PROCEDURES WILL PRODUCE HIGHLY SPECIALIZED ANIMALS FOR UNIQUE GENETIC RECOMBINATION AND REGULATION.
