Summary Introduction

To describe: The need for insertion of DNA into a bacterial plasmid during the process of cloning human DNA.

Introduction: The process of fusion of male gamete with the female gamete is called “fertilization.” After the fusion of gametes, a two-celled structure is formed which is known as a zygote. A zygote will further differentiate and give rise to an embryo which later forms a whole individual.

Explanation of Solution

The plasmid (vector) is able to carry the human DNA into the bacterial genome easily. A plasmid which acts as a vector in transferring the human DNA can be easily incorporated in the bacterial cell. When the cycle of multiplication occurs inside t...
