In an article published in Nature on September 9, 2010, Qi-Long Ying's laboratory describes for the first time the generation of knockout rats using homologous recombination:

Production of p53 gene knockout rats by homologous recombination in embryonic stem cells. Nature: 467: 211-213.

In doing so they cleared one of the last barriers to using the rat's full potential as a model for studying human disease.
