Chapter 20: Biotechnology
1. Recombinant DNA, DNA moles formed when segments of DNA from two different
sources-often different species-are combined in vitro (in a test tube). This advance gave
rise to the development of powerful techniques for analyzing g

1. Concept 18.1: Bacteria often respond to environmental change by regulating transcription
a. The switch of a segment of DNA is called an operator. Both its location and name
suit its function: Positioned within
