Cloning Genes Is a Multistep Process

Briefly describe how to clone a segment of DNA. Start with cutting the DNA of interest with a restriction enzyme.

Summary Introduction

To describe: The steps of cloning a segment of DNA.

Introduction: The nucleic acid consists of the genetic information of an individual which passes from generation one to another. The DNA molecule consists of various nucleotides which helps in the formation of its structure.

Explanation of Solution

The process of cloning of DNA segment represents the production of multiple copies which are genetically similar to each other.

The steps for the cloning a segment of DNA is given below:

  • STEP I:

    Firstly, the DNA segment that is to be cloned is extracted with the help of a restriction enzyme. The enzyme forms the cut at the specific sites in the DNA strand and the desired segment of DNA is obtained.

  • STEP II:

    Using the same restriction enzyme, the incisions are made in the plasmid...
