DNA technology

The capacity to examine, manipulate, and copy and paste segments of DNA is essential to many applications of contemporary biotechnology. Sometimes, methods for manipulating and sequencing DNA are referred to as DNA technologies. The chloride channel gene, for instance, was inserted into a piece of carrier DNA (a vector) for the cystic fibrosis gene therapy experiment using DNA manipulation techniques. This allowed the gene to be expressed in human lung cells. Both basic biology and applied (practical) biology benefit from DNA technology. For instance, the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), a method for producing several copies of a DNA sequence, is utilised in both fundamental laboratory research and numerous forensics and medical diagnostic procedures.
