  • The idea behind genetic engineering is to move genes for desired characteristics from one organism to another so that it has those characteristics too.
    • The organism's genome is changed during the process. A genome is an organism's complete set of DNA, including its genes.
      • A vector is something that is used to transfer DNA into a cell.
        • Plasmids are often used as vectors. They are small, circular molecules of DNA that can be transferred between bacteria.
