Summary of DNA cloning
DNA cloning is a molecular biology technique that involves the production of genetically identical copies of a sequence. In many cloning experiments, a gene or DNA sequence of interest are inserted into a plasmid, which is introduced into bacteria through transformation. After the bacteria with the plasmid are selected for, they are induced to replicate and create identical copies of the original DNA sequence.
Flashcards on DNA cloning
For DNA cloning, the sequence of interest is inserted into a circular piece of DNA called a .
