Unformatted text preview: they are used to cut a virus into pieces when it enters the cell- put e coli into fermentation vats, then extract plasmids. use restriction enzymes to cut the plasmids and you do the same to cut a selected gene from human dna. then connect the plasmids and piece of human gene and reinsert back into e coli bacteria. the e coli if done right now will do whatever that human gene says to do like for example harvesting human insilin using e coli.- anothe example is for hemopheliacs, they produce a protein used for clotting in sheeps milk. human gene has been implanted so the sheep produce it.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
