5.16 Transgenic Organism

Recall that the term 'transgenic' means the transfer of genetic material from one species to a different species.

The previous objectives 5.13 and 5.15 both show examples of transgenic organisms:

  • In 5.13, the bacterial cell had become transgenic since it still had bacterial DNA but also plasmids that carried human insulin genes.
  • In 5.15, the maize had  become transgenic since we introduced the BT gene to the maize DNA.
