Mice: a case study

Biotechnology is being used to develop a new approach to controlling mice through limiting their reproduction. The process is called immunocontraception and it involves fooling the body into thinking that certain proteins found on mouse egg cells are foreign. The body’s immune system produces antibodies that bind on to these proteins, preventing pregnancy.
