Taking segments of DNA from one organism and putting them into the DNA of another organism. Synonymous with recombinant DNA technology.
A technique used to join segments of DNA to form a new genetic combination.
the process of cutting the DNA of a gene in order to add base pairs.
The isolation of a gene from one organism and then the introduction of that gene into another organism using techniques of biotechnology.
Joining together or inserting segments of DNA or RNA so as to form new genetic combinations or change a genetic structure.
