Recombinant DNA has been gaining in importance over the last few years, and

recombinant DNA will o
nly become more important in the 21st century as genetic

diseases become more prevelant and agricultural area is reduced. Below are

some of the areas where Recombinant DNA will have an impact.



Better Crops (drought & heat resistance)



Recombinant Vaccin
es (ie. Hepatitis B)



Prevention and cure of sickle cell anemia



Prevention and cure of cystic fibrosis



Production of clotting factors



Production of insulin



Production of recombinant pharmaceuticals



Plants that produce their own insecticides



Germ lin
e and somatic gene therapy
