Technologies and Tools by Harry Ren and Mazen Malak
- molecular/gene cloning
this cloning is the process that creates identical DNA molecules.molecular cloning has led researchers to identify, localize and characterize genes; create genetic maps and sequence entire genomes; associate genes with traits and determine the molecular basis of these traits.
- animal cloning
cloning animals is achieved through embryo splitting. which is like the same process as splitting embryos to form twins, but instead of in the womb its in a lab setting
^this is a picture of how cloning works^
medical researchers have used protein engineering to design novel proteins that can bind to and deactivate viruses and tumor-causing genes, and create especially effective vaccines
Recombinant DNA Technology
- What it is
The technology is when 2 pieces of DNA from different organisms and joining/recombining them together.
Recombinant DNA technology is used to genetically modify animals and plants for certain needs. It is also used along with selective breeding to decrease the chance of having a unexpected trait or body part.
Insulin in humans who has diabetes are now able to make there insulin useful by applying insulin that works from another human to the diabetes patient.
