How could a single nucleotide change on the plasmid alter the fragment pattern observed in the gel? Recombinant DNA technology is used to make genetically modified organisms (GMOs). No doubt you are aware of the current debate about GMO food. Thinking as a scientist, describe the kinds of data you think would be important for making a decision about whether GMO-derived food is safe for your family Explain what it means that the genotype is a phenotype in this laboratory. How does the appearance of the banding pattern in the gel, resulting from endonuclease cutting, tell us (to a limited extent) about the genetic makeup of the plasmid? For a plasmid to be useful as a recombinant DNA vector, it must have some essential features. What features are important for a plasmid that is used in recombinant DNA procedures?
