REVIEW ON THE APPLICATION OF GENETIC ENGINEERING/MOLECULAR BIOTECHNOLOGY IN ENVIRONMENTAL SECTORS
Keywords:Recombinant DNA, Molecular biotechnology, Environmental sector, Genetically modified organism (GMO)
Genetic engineering, the artificial manipulation, modification, and recombination of DNA or other nucleic acid molecules in order to modify an organism or population of organisms. The term genetic engineering initially referred to various techniques used for the modification or manipulation of organisms through the processes of heredity and reproduction.
Creation of genetically modified organisms requires recombinant DNA. Genome of an organism. Creation of genetically modified organisms requires recombinant DNA. Recombinant DNA is a combination of DNA from different organisms or different locations in a given genome that would not normally be found in nature. Genetic engineering has different uses for Environmental sectors. There for the objective of this paper was to review on the Application of Genetic Engineering/Molecular biotechnology in Environmental sectors.
