Flashcards in 9- Biotechnology And Gene Manipulation Deck (13)
A technique that uses film sensitive to radiation, most commonly X rays, to visualise the molecule(s) fragments that have been labelled with a radioactive isotope.
Techniques using recombinant DNA to produce organisms with different genes
A process that is able to identify natural variations that exist within everyone's DNA, using the polymerase chain reactions and gel electrophoresis
The total DNA of the haploid Ste of chromosomes in a na organism
A piece of DNA found in bacteria and yeast that is able to replicate independently of the main chromosomes of the cell.
Recombinant DNA technology
Transferring a gene from a cell of a member of one species to the cell of a different species
Unspecialised cells with the potential to develop into many different types of cells.
The branch of science that deals with the manipulation of biological processes
Ends produced when restriction enzymes cut down DNA at the same position on both anti-parallel strands, leaving no overhanging edges.
The process of heating up DNA which cause the hydrogen bonds between the bases to break leaving the two stands apart.
An enzyme that synthesises bonds between adjacent nucleotides.
