Presentation Transcript


1. Recombinant DNA and Genetic Engineering Chapter 16

2. Definitions Recombinant DNA technology: techniques & tools used to analyze genes Genetic Engineering: uses the above technology to isolate & modify genes in organisms or even to insert new genes

3. Genetic Engineering Genes are isolated, modified, and inserted into an organism Made possible by recombinant technology Cut DNA up and recombine pieces Amplify modified pieces

4. Restriction Enzymes Molecular scissors that cut DNA at a specific nucleotide sequence Over 200 different restriction enzymes are known, each isolated from bacteria and able to cut DNA in a unique manner

5. Restriction enzymes
