- To illustrate the different steps required to clone a gene of interest
- To understand how a gene can be transferred to a host cell
- To understand how the host cells having the recombinant DNA are selected
The stages of a gene cloning technology are :
- Cleaving DNA: this stage requires a restriction enzyme that specifically cuts the genomic DNA containing the gene of interest as well as the DNA…
