  • Why Pharmacogenomics is Important
    The explanation of Pharmacogenomics can sometimes be a little complicated. This article is designed to help clear up existing questions and hopefully shed a little more light on this subject and why it's so important.
  • Techniques to Create Recombinant DNA
    There is a variety of recombinant DNA technology used by geneticists to isolate a gene and place it into a new organism. Usually, they use the process of inserting the gene into a molecule that can then be placed into a cell. The cell then divides to create duplicates of the recombinant DNA.

    Today, with greater acceptance of the practice and scientific advancement, more childless couples are having babies – thanks to surrogate mothers and advances in medical technology.
  • The Process of Protein Production in Recombinant DNA Using E.coli
    Protein production in recombinant DNA using E. coli is an efficient process that utilizes adapted genetic coding to create foreign amino acids. These amino acids form together into polypeptide chains, which are folded into proteins. E. coli's rate of reproduction makes it perfect for genetics.
  • The History of Recombinant DNA Technology
    Throughout the history of recombinant DNA technology, the quest to isolate a usable restrictive enzyme that could cleave genes from DNA was one of the most important steps. Once this was identified, the actual process of creating a bacteria with the genes of another organism developed quickly.
  • Steps Used to Clone Genes: A Guide to Recombinant DNA Technology
    There are many basic steps in gene cloning in recombinant DNA technology. These steps can help scientists isolate many microorganisms with genes from different organisms. Although the technology has made many advances, it is still best used with basic cellular species such as bacteria.
  • What is the Most Common Way to Introduce Recombinant DNA to Bacteria?
    What is the most common way to introduce recombinant DNA to bacteria? The process of using recombinant DNA is relatively simple in terms of genetic engineering. It basically involves isolating the necessary gene, assembling it into a vector and inserting it into a receptive bacteria.
