Process of introducing foreign genetic material, such as DNA or RNA, into host cells.
This requires foreign DNA to be synthesized as part of a vector, which is designed to enter the desired host cell and deliver the transgene to that cell's genome.
Modification and manipulation of an organism's genes using technology.
If genetic material from another species is added to the host, the resulting organism is called transgenic.
Prevention of large-scale loss of biological integrity, focusing both on ecology and human health.
In agriculture (reducing the risk of alien viral or transgenic genes, genetic engineering or prions such as BSE/"MadCow", reducing the risk of food bacterial contamination)
Small mammal of the order Rodentia which is bred and used for scientific research or feeders for certain pets.
There are hundreds of established inbred, outbred, and transgenic strains.
In genetic engineering, a gene gun or biolistic particle delivery system is a device used to deliver exogenous DNA (transgenes), RNA, or protein to cells.
City in and the county seat of Jefferson County, Oregon, United States.
In 2003, a Scotts Company large field trial of GMO bentgrass near Madras resulted in pollen spreading the transgene, which is Roundup resistant, over an area of 310 km2.
Any organism whose genetic material has been altered using genetic engineering techniques.
However it took another eight years before transgenic mice were developed that passed the transgene to their offspring.
Mouse (Mus musculus) that has had its genome altered through the use of genetic engineering techniques.
However, the mice did not pass the transgene to their offspring, and the impact and applicability of this experiment were, therefore, limited.
Branch of biology that seeks to understand the molecular basis of biological activity in and between cells, including molecular synthesis, modification, mechanisms, and interactions.
These blots are still used for some applications, however, such as measuring transgene copy number in transgenic mice or in the engineering of gene knockout embryonic stem cell lines.
Use of a glass micropipette to inject a liquid substance at a microscopic or borderline macroscopic level.
Pronuclear injection is a technique used to create transgenic organisms by injecting genetic material into the nucleus of a fertilized oocyte.
