Reproduction involving introduction of foreign-species DNA into an ovum.

n.
The transfer of cloned genetic material from one species or breed to another.

trans·gen·e·sis

(trans-jen'ĕ-sis)
Reproduction involving introduction of foreign-species DNA into an ovum.

transgenesis

the process of deliberately introducing new GENES into the GERM LINE of organisms so that all the offspring inherit the introduced genes as part of their genetic makeup.

transgenesis

transfer of genes from one individual into the genome of another who transmits it to successive generations.

Focusing on a few of these mechanisms, scientists here set out a variety of protocols for studying the function of small non-coding RNAs, DNA methylation, and histone modifications in plants, They provide several protocols with a range of complexity when possible, and include protocols for plant transgenesis and analyzing genome stability to the extent that these factors impinge on epigenetics.
This new system of transgenesis uses site specific recombination by the use of the bacterial and plasmid attachment sites to integrate at a specific site into the Drosophila genome (8) (fig.
Genetically modified organisms have had specific changes introduced into their DNA by genetic engineering, using a process of either Cisgenesis or Transgenesis.
Moreover, both inadvertent transgenesis by rescue intracytoplasmic sperm injection with a semen sample contaminated with bacteria (37) and epigenetic in heritance associated with zygotic transfer of RNA molecules in mice (38) have been reported.
in gene therapy (as well as functional genomics), it facilitates design of vectors that are better targeted to specific sequences, which would be a significant advance in the art of transgenesis.
Over the past two decades there has been a concerted effort to isolate and characterize antimicrobial peptides (AMPs) as an alternative to antibiotics (Mookherjee & Hancock 2007, Pereira 2006), as well as for the creation of disease-resistant strains of fish through transgenesis (Buchanan et al.
This field of creativity is based on the use of certain genetic and biochemical methods in contemporary art practice, among them neogenesis (correcting the genetic code by exerting influence of amino acids that, though existing in nature, have never been used by terrestrial forms of life to form an organism), degenesis (knock-out of the genes or genetic structures to obtain new characteristics of an organism), and transgenesis (removal- or artificial synthesis--of genes or genetic structures from the cells of an organism and their implantation into the cells of different organisms).
His, perhaps unpopular, suggestion is that transgenesis (utilizing genes from one species with those of another to, for instance, resist plant pests) will continue and will result in dramatic increases in food production.
One significant advantage of transgenesis is in rapid genetic improvement of traits of interest as the selection for an animal for a particular trait involves many years.
We believe this agreement will place our proprietary technology in highly capable hands, enabling and ensuring the production, sales and distribution of an important tool for improved transgenesis.
We adapted transgenesis with TH-responsive elements coupled to either luciferase or green fluorescent protein to follow [T.
Enhanced with 100 full-color photographs, 2500 references, hundreds of figures, equations and tables, Encyclopedia Of Animal Science covers all of the new developments in genomics, transgenesis, cloning, and mathematical model constructions.
