Recombinant DNA and Biotechnology Biotechnology  is an industrial process that uses the scientific research on DNA for practical  benefits. Biotechnology is synonymous with  genetic engineering  because the genes of an  organism are changed during the process and the DNA of the organism is recombined. Recombinant  DNA and biotechnology can be used to form proteins not normally produced in a cell. In addition,  bacteria that carry recombinant DNA can be released into the environment to increase the fertility of  the soil, serve as an insecticide, or relieve pollution.  Tools of biotechnology.  The basic process of recombinant DNA technology revolves around the  activity of DNA in the synthesis of protein. By intervening in this process, scientists can change the  nature of the DNA and of the gene make-up of an organism. By inserting genes into the genome of
