Genetic Engineering Genetic engineering involves the manipulation of organism genes. The central tool is the recombinant DNA technique. - to isolate a gene of interest from one organism - to insert the isolated gene to a DNA molecule (known as vector) that can replicate. - to provide an environment (known as recipient cells) that allows reproduction of the joined DNA molecule and generate the gene product.
