Cloning

Recombinant DNA technology is the cornerstone of modern day Life Science. DNA cloning involves copying, modifying and amplifying DNA-of-interest.

Modern-day Life Science relies on molecular manipulations of an organism’s genome to study the behaviors of individual genes of interest. Because the structure of DNA is the same species, it is possible to cut-and-paste one gene into the machinery of another organism and exploit improved expression. Generally, cloning refers to the replication of DNA by an organism other than the organism-of-origin. Cloning has become the cornerstone of molecular biology and has broad applications including the isolation of single genes, the preparation of modified versions of genes, expression studies, and protein production.
