Warm-up. List 3 new things you learned about bacteria. Genetic engineering. Recombinant DNA technology. Why are we using bacteria for biotechnology rather than some other organsism?. What are some characteristics that make bacteria a good choice for genetic engineering?
Recombinant DNA technology
(think and then talk with your partner)
Most bacterial DNA is on a single large chromosome, but some DNA is in small circles called plasmids.
