We're gonna talk today about recombinant DNA. Uh . . . when people in the general public hear the term recombinant DNA they sort of conjure up these ideas of mad scientists going around you know cloning bizarre organisms or creating dangerous forms of life. I told you about plasmids last time - small circular DNA molecules that are, that are used in the purpose of cloning. They're derived from nature but then they're, they've been heavily manipulated by scientists. Purify the enzyme and then perhaps inject it into the individual. The bacteria that didn't get a plasmid die. The bacteria that did get a plasmid survive. Um . . . the gene of interest is a "Toxic Gene".
