REFLECT AND APPLY The genes for both the a- and b-globin chains of hemoglobin contain introns (i.e., they are split genes). How would this fact affect your plans if you wanted to introduce the gene for a-globin into a bacterial plasmid and have the bacteria produce a-globin?

Interpretation Introduction


The introduction of a gene for α-globin in bacterial plasmid and its growth in bacteria are to be discussed.

Concept introduction:

Genetic engineering, also known as genetic modification, is the process of varying or changing the sequence of DNA in the genome of an organism.

Use of genetic engineering in agriculture to modify crops is beneficial for the agriculture world.


Given information: The genes for both the α- and β-globin chains of haemoglobin contain introns.

Since genes for both the α- and β<
