  • B2 GENETIC ENGENEERING
    • It is the removal of genes from the DNA of one organism and the insertion into the DNA of another organism
    • Genes can be swapped across species
    • The gene you want is cut out a human chromosome using special enzymes
    • The whole process is carried out on an industrial scale so that masses of insulin is produced in a continuous process
    • The bacteria is tricked into  carrying out the instructions of the human gene and producing the protein, insulin
  • Produces a unique set of genes

      • The bacteria is tricked into  carrying out the instructions of the human gene and producing the protein, insulin
  • Can be used to produce large quantities of insulin
    • Helps sufferers of diabetes
      • Once the bacteria is cultivated so that it multiplies  so that it multiplies many times enough insulin is produced it can be filtered off and collected
