Foreign DNA

Some articles on dna, foreign, foreign dna:

Steps in Molecular Cloning - Creation of Recombinant DNA With DNA Ligase
... The creation of recombinant DNA is in many ways the simplest step of the molecular cloning process ... DNA prepared from the vector and foreign source are simply mixed together at appropriate concentrations and exposed to an enzyme (DNA ligase) that covalently links the ends together ... The resulting DNA mixture containing randomly joined ends is then ready for introduction into the host organism ...
Burkholderia Gladioli - Identification
... conserved and universally distributed in all living things, and therefore difference in the DNA sequences between 16S and 23S rRNA genes can be used to differentiate between the species ... Members of the Burkholderia genus are able to capture and retain foreign DNA ... The foreign DNA can be detected by looking for atypical GC context areas ...
Steps in Molecular Cloning - Preparation of Vector DNA
... is treated with a restriction endonuclease to cleave the DNA at the site where foreign DNA will be inserted ... that is compatible with that at the ends of the foreign DNA (see DNA end) ... Typically, this is done by cleaving the vector DNA and foreign DNA with the same restriction enzyme, for example EcoRI ...

Famous quotes containing the words dna and/or foreign:

    Here [in London, history] ... seemed the very fabric of things, as if the city were a single growth of stone and brick, uncounted strata of message and meaning, age upon age, generated over the centuries to the dictates of some now all-but-unreadable DNA of commerce and empire.
    William Gibson (b. 1948)

    Meanwhile I, deserted, was lamenting a little to myself your long delays in foreign loves, until sleep with its pleasing wings compelled me, fallen.
    Propertius Sextus (c. 50–16 B.C.)
