  • Genetic Engineering-Insulin
  • The gene that is desired is taken from the human cell, enzymes cutting it out.
    • We then put this into a bacteria plasmid (DNA)
      • Next put the plasmid back into the bacteria cell.
        • These will then divide by asexual reproduction till it makes enough

  • NB:The Bacteria will produce the insulin as they have information, but as they do not use it, it can be harvested&sold
