How Is a Plasmid Used in Gene Splicing?

Answer

Plasmid, or a small circular piece of DNA in a bacterial cell, is cut or opened with the use of a restriction enzyme. After the plasmid is opened, the genetic code needed for growth and development are placed inside. This new combination is known as recombinant DNA. The spliced piece of plasmid is then placed into a bacterium to grow.

Don't worry its not to hard i did this in my A-levels, first you need to isolate the human gene this can be done via two ways 1) use restriction endonuclease to cut the gene from
