Recombinant DNA Technology Problem Set

Problem 4 Recombinant DNA 2


DNA from a eukaryotic organism is digested with a restriction endonuclease and the resulting fragments cloned into a plasmid vector. Bacteria transformed by these plasmids collectively contain all of the genes of the organism. This culture of bacteria is refereed to as a:

A. restriction map
B. RFLP profile
C. F' factor
D. library
Yes, a library is a culture of bacteria where each cell has one or a few DNA sequences from another organism, but the whole culture contains the majority of the DNA fragments from an organism.
E. lysogenic phage
