Genetic Modification

- Genetic modification is where a gene from one organism is transferred to another

-The stages of Genetic Modification 

          -First the gene that's responsible for producing the desirable protien is isolated, its         position on the source DNA is identified 

          -The useful gene is then replicated to create lots of copies.

          -Each gene is joined to a vector, a carrier for the gene which makes it easier to insert into a new cell. Plasmids and viruses are often used as vectors
