We have shown that archaeal MVs can transfer DNA
and that some of them harbour plasmid or viral genomes.
Agrobacteria is a plant pest," he said of the pathogen biologists often use in genetic engineering work, noting that it can transfer DNA
between itself and other organisms.
The liposome delivery system, specifically engineered to transfer DNA
repair enzymes at the molecular level, enhances restoration of UV irradiated skin.
A team at Newcastle University have devised a technique which enables them to successfully transfer DNA
between two human eggs.
Vector: A type of DNA element--such as a plasmid, the genome of a bacteriophage, or a virus--that is self-replicating and can be used to transfer DNA
segments into target cells.
Forensic scientist Jonathan Whitaker told the jury: "The coving has been swabbed along the edges and joins where it is considered that the individual responsible for erecting the coving would have held, or applied pressure, such as there was potential to transfer DNA
to this surface.
Time-resolved fluorescence energy transfer DNA
helicase assays for high-throughput screening.
Whereas biotechnology gave us the tools to break the species barrier (to transfer DNA
to and from unrelated organisms), nanotechnology enables scientists to shatter the barrier between living and nonliving.
The lentivirus is especially attractive for gene therapy, according to lead investigator Pierre Charneau, PhD, because when it is used as a vector, it has the ability to transfer DNA
into poorly-dividing or nondividing cells, such as nerve cells, blood stem cells, and liver and muscles cells.
WebDrive is also being used to transfer DNA
sequencing chromatogram files from the Finch-Server to end user computers.
Agrobacterium transformation technology allows scientists to transfer DNA
to plant cells.
The system uses magnetic silica beads that bind DNA to a silica surface and transfer DNA
through various steps of the extraction process.
