Biology Lab Report Genetic Exchange In Prokaryotes
679 wordsThis lab deals with the process of genetic exchange in prokaryotes. There are three main mechanisms of genetic exchange which include transformation, transduction, and conjugation. In transformation, DNA is released from cells in the surrounding environment which is then incorporated into the recipient cells DNA. In transduction, DNA is transferred through a virus to the recipient. In conjugation, genetic exchange occurs through direct contact with another cell and the plasmid is transferred fro...

Genetic Engineering E G
406 wordsBioengineering, or genetic engineering is an altering of genes in a particular species for a particular outcome. It involves taking genes from their normal location in one organism and either transferring them elsewhere or putting them back into the original organism in different combinations. Most biomolecules exist in low concentrations and as complex, mixed populations which it is not possible to work efficiently. This problem was solved in 1970 using a bug, Escherichia coli, a normally innoc...

They have a single DNA molecule in the cytoplasm. Almost all minerals have a cell wall that protects the cell and gives it its shape. Some minerals have a layer outside the cell wall called the capsule. This helps the cell cling to surfaces. A typical bacterium is about 2 micrometers long. Inside the cell, there are nucleic acids, enzymes, and other substa...
