Permit Application Available for Review and Comment We invite local, State, and Federal agencies, Tribes, and the public to comment on the following application: Permit Application Number TE59243C–0 Applicant: Revive and Restore, Sausalito, CA. The applicant requests a permit to conduct ‘‘Phase 1’’ of a multi-phase process to generate disease-resistant black-footed ferrets (Mustela nigripes). This phase would involve research in laboratories located in North Rose, NY, and San Diego, CA. The studies aim to develop, test, and optimize model cisgenic and novel disease-resistance pathways in the black-footed ferret, both in vitro and in vivo, leveraging domestic ferret resources for comparative genomics, comparative proteomics, and interspecies somatic cell nuclear transfer (iSCNT) reproductive techniques for the purpose of enhancing the species’ survival. Integration of genetically modified black-footed ferrets into wild populations would require careful execution and constitutes ‘‘Phase 2’’ of the long-term program.
