GENETIC ENGINEERING

Bible DictionaryAids Glossary
manipulation of an organism's genetic material to modify the proteins it produces.
Bible DictionaryGlossary of HIV(AIDS)-Related Terms
The technique by which genetic material from one organism is inserted into a foreign cell in order to mass-produce the protein encoded by the inserted genes. This relatively new technique manipulates the DNA (genetic material) of cells. For example, in this technique, the genes, which are actually portions of molecules of DNA, are removed from the donor organism (insect, plant, mammal, or other organism) and spliced into the genetic material of a virus; the virus is then allowed to infect recipient bacteria. In this way the bacteria become recipients of both viral and foreign genetic material. When the virus replicates within the bacteria, large quantities of the foreign as well as viral material are made. (See also Recombinant).
Bible DictionaryHIV Vaccine Glossary
the laboratory technique of recombining genes to produce proteins used for drugs and vaccines.
Bible DictionaryHepatitis Central (TM) Liver Disease Medical Glossary
Intentional production of new genes and alteration of genomes by the substitution or addition of new genetic material
Bible DictionaryACSH Medical Terms
Altering genetic (DNA) molecules outside an organism (e.g., by inserting into a DNA molecule a segment from a very different DNA molecule) and making the resultant DNA molecules (called “recombinant DNA”) function in living things.
