Reproduction in Bacteria

Bacterial Reproduction Both asexual and sexual reproduction occurs in bacteria. Asexual reproduction Asexual reproduction in bacteria occurs by binary fission. It occurs during favourable conditions. The size of bacteria becomes double. Bacteria absorb nutrients. It synthesizes its DNA. Bacteria also develop other material for

Basic Genetic Engineering Techniques

Genetic engineering techniques of such gene manipulation involve Isolation of a specific deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) molecule Or molecules to be replicated (the passenger  DNA) The joining of this DNA with a DNA vector (also known as a vehicle or a replicon). It is capable

Transformation of cell

Transformation is the genetic alteration of a cell resulting from the introduction, uptake and expression of foreign genetic material (DNA or RNA). In 1928 Frederick Griffith transforms nonpathogenic pneumococcus bacteria into a virulent variety by mixing them in heat-killed pathogenic material. The effect was
