Cloning Vectors

Cloning Vectors Genetic vectors are vehicles for delivering foreign DNA into recipient cells. In molecular cloning, a vector is a DNA molecule used as a vehicle to artificially carry foreign genetic material into another cell, where it can be replicated and/or expressed. Vectors can replicate autonomously and typically include features to facilitate the manipulation of DNA as well as a genetic marker for their selective recognition.  …

Gene Cloning- Requirements, Principle, Steps, Applications

Gene Cloning- Requirements, Principle, Steps, Applications The production of exact copies of a particular gene or DNA sequence using genetic engineering techniques is called gene cloning. The term “gene cloning,” “DNA cloning,” “molecular cloning,” and “recombinant DNA technology” all refer to same technique. When DNA is extracted from an organism, all its genes are obtained. In gene (DNA) cloning a particular gene …
