Cloning Technology & Research
What is cloning?
Gene cloning, or DNA cloning, produces exact copies of segments of DNA or genes. This process includes inserting a gene from one organism into the genetic material of a carrier called a vector. The vector could include: bacteria, yeast cells, viruses, etc. The vector is placed in a lab conditions that cause it to multiply, resulting in the replication of the gene. -Genome
- Remove the DNA-containing nucleus of the somatic cell and inject it into the egg
- Use an electrical current to fuse the somatic cell with the egg cell
