Interesting stuff alert! We heard from TGen that this scientist is interested in doing a mouse model on Katie's mutation at some point - hopefully we are talking sooner than later.  In my generic terms: he will get some mice, somehow make them have her same exact mutation - and see what they do.  I am sure there is much more to it, but this is my unscientific BA of Psych explanation.

Will these mice walk like a drunken sailor? Maybe they will drool a little bit and need tiny bibs. Will they sleep with their mouths open and have GI issues?

 I hope they will show some signs of Katie's issues.  I don't know how long it takes to get this started, he might need a grant - but I love that Katie will have some mice who can relate!
