Genetic Engineering and Recombinant DNA Technology

ID #1468

I have a question about gene cloning. If different parts of genomic fragments are used for each of the genes for cloning, how would they be cloning since each of them will have different information in it, and leading them to be different...material? I guess?


It sounds like you're only considering one of the working definitions of the word "cloning." Cloning can describe the process of creating a new organism, or organ, with living cells and intact genomes, and I think this is what you're referring to. But it can also describe the process of isolating only a portion of a genome, making lots of copies of that fragment of DNA, and doing something interesting or useful with it.
