Recombinant technologies entail the use of molecular cloning to bring together genetic material from multiple sources and create DNA sequences not found in biological organisms in their natural course of evolution. A path-breaking field of research, this branch of science brings forth much benefits, and has the potential to change life as we know of it today.
This Bright Hub guide provides a collection of well-researched and in-depth articles written by experts in the field, providing information and knowledge on the use and application of recombinant DNA technologies, the benefits, the techniques, the risks, and more. Use the comments section to connect with a vibrant community of experts and enthusiasts in the field.
