Unformatted text preview: Chapter 9 Biotechnology and Genetic Engineering Biotechnology and Recombinant DNA Biotechnology use of cells or cell components to make a product Genetic engineering Inserting genes into cells in order to create biological factories Uses recombinant DNA technology inserts foreign DNA into a chromosome or a plasmid to modify existing DNA sequence produces new bacterial strains Figure 9.1.1 Requires vector Produces clones carrying gene of interest Recombinant DNA Procedures Electroporation Protoplast fusion Gene gun Microinjection Microinjection Protoplast fusion Gene gun Naturally occurring enzymes that cut DNA into fragments Cut in predictable and controllable manner Generates pieces of DNA called restriction fragments These fragments can be joined to new fragments Enzymes produce jagged cuts called sticky ends Ends anneal together to form new strand DNA ligase covalently joins fragments Scientists have isolated thousands of enzymes with specific target sites Used to slice out individual genes Restriction enzymes Gene Amplification...
