What makes recombinant DNA different from normal DNA and why are plasmids important to them? How is recombinant DNA obtained?
- Recombinant DNA contains a foreign gene, meaning it contains genetic material from 2 different organisms.
- Plasmids serve as the host for the foreign gene.
- Recombinant DNA is obtained through the following:
- Cell membrane dissolution
- Cleavage of plasma DNA
- Gene removal from other organisms
- Gene-plasma splicing
- Isolation of plasmid function
