Flashcards in Genetic Engineering Deck (3)
What is genetic engineering?
Genetic Engineering is when you take genetic material from a living organism and transfer it into a different type of organism
What is the process of genetic engineering?
- The section of the required gene in the cell is identified and cut out using a restriction enzyme
-Plasmid is removed and cut open using a restriction enzyme
- The required gene is inserted into the plasmid with the help of ligase
- The altered plasmid in inserted back into the bacteria
- Grow in culture
