isolating DNA of one organism and transferring into the DNA of another organism.
Recombinant DNA (rDNA)
DNA molecule made from separate organisms
four basic steps in rDNA
1. cleaving DNA (usiing restrictive enzymes) 2. Producing recombinant DNA 3. cloning cells 4 screening cells
genetic engineering that makes new medicines (such as insulin), vaccines, and hopeful to cure genetic diseases.
genetic engineering with crops resistant to herbicices and pest; reduce the need for fertilizer and improve production.
