Genetic manipulation. Definition

Medical Definition: Genetic manipulation

Formation of new combinations of heritable material by the insertion of nucleic acid molecules obtained from the cell in the interior of any virus, bacterial plasmid or other vector system outside the cell. This will allow their incorporation into a host organism which does not naturally occur but in which these molecules are able to breed continuously. Referring to the process itself, we can speak of genetic manipulation, genetic engineering or recombinant DNA technology. It also supports the designation of molecular cloning or gene cloning, since the formation of heritable material can be spread or grow by planting a line of genetically identical.
