Molecular biology offers various powerful tools for understanding the etiology of diabetes mellitus. These methods can be understood by nonmolecular biologists. Topics briefly introduced include 7) control of gene expression, 2) cloning of genes, 3) how gene promoters work, 4) transgenic mice, 5) mutagenesis in vitro, 6) human molecular genetics, and 7) the new powerful polymerase chain-reaction technique, which greatly simplifies many of the other methods.
