Genetic engineering: using in vitro techniques to alter genetic material in the laboratory
A crystalline solid possesses rigid and long-range
order. In a crystalline solid, atoms, molecules or ions
occupy specific (predictable) positions.
An amorphous solid does not possess a well-defined
arrangement and long-range molecular order.
