Cloning Genes Is a Multistep Process

What is meant by the term recombinant DNA?

  1. a. DNA from bacteria and viruses
  2. b. DNA from different sources that normally are not found together
  3. c. DNA from restriction-enzyme digestions
  4. d. DNA that can make RNA and proteins
  5. e. none of these

Summary Introduction

Introduction: The recombinant organism shows the criteria of superiority from the parents. Involvement of genetic sequences takes place in the origination of the hybrid or recombinant organism.

Explanation of Solution

Reason for correct answer:

The process of recombinant DNA involves DNA segments that are obtained from two different organisms. It shows the traits of both the parents whose DNA segments are involved in the production of hybrid DNA. The joining of two DNA segments takes place by using different laboratory procedures.

Option b. is given as “DNA from different sources that normally are not found together.”

A recombinant DNA represents the “DNA from different sources that normally are not found together.” Hence, the correct answer is option b.

Reason for incorrect answer:

Option a. is given as, “DNA from bacteria and virus.”

The DNA from bacteria and virus without any combination represents normal DNA, not the recombinant DNA. Hence, option a...
