In vitro cloning


  • Can be used to produce lots of DNA
  • The DNA produced isn't modified
  • only replicates the DNA fragment of interest
  • Fast process - PCR can produce millions of copies in a few hours.


  • It can only replicate a small DNA fragment
  • You may need to modify the DNA
  • cannot make mRNA or protein


In vitro cloning makes copies of genes outside of a living organism using PCR
