_IMG_01_14-cloning.jpg AligN=RighT Cloning a recombinant gene. A vector, such as a virus or plasmid, and a DNA fragment produced by cutting with a restriction enzyme are joined to produce a recombinant DNA molecule that is transferred to a bacterial cell. _Vid_Campbell7e/ch20/20_03RestrictionEnzymes_A.swf The desired recombinant DNA is cloned into many copies by replication of the DNA and by division of the bacterial _FIG_01_14-cloning2.jpg cell. _Vid_Campbell7e/ch20/20_04CloningAGene_A.swf
