Abstract

Perhaps not as exciting as recreating live dinosaurs from DNA extracted from ancient mosquitoes, but almost as amazing, is manipulating DNA in order to identify particular genes or alleles. Although creating entire organisms from a DNA sample is not possible at this time, recombinant DNA analysis is a powerful tool used in many different disciplines including human forensic science, diagnostic medicine, paternity testing, investigation of wildlife poaching, and plant and animal science. The later category, animal science, was the concern of this lab study.
