 Scientists Mario R. Capecchi, Oliver Smithies and Sir Martin J. Evans have
  been named the recipients of the 2007 Nobel Prize in medicine. The three
developed a technique called "gene targeting," which lets scientists deactivate
  or modify particular genes in mice. That in turn lets them study how those
                       genes affect health and disease.
