Gene Therapy

Gene therapy is when DNA is introduced into a patient to treat a genetic disease. The new DNA usually contains a functioning gene to correct the effects of a disease-causing mutation. The process of gene therapy includes many approaches like: Replacing of mutated gene (work incorrectly or no longer work at all) with copy [...]

Plasmid vectors

Vectors can be described as an autonomously replicating DNA sequence that can be used to carry foreign DNA fragments. Commonly used vectors are bacteriophages and plasmids. A vector that is used predominantly for reproducing DNA segment is referred to as cloning vectors and vectors used for expressing a gene contained within the cloned DNA is [...]

Molecular cloning

Molecular cloning is the process of inserting a DNA sequence (generally a gene) from a selected species into a replicating vehicles like vectors or plasmids, for propagation, without any alteration or modification of the original DNA sequence. Molecular clones can be used to express the resulting proteins for the utilization of protein’s functions. It [...]
