Plasmids are Used to Replicate a Recombinant DNA

Plasmids are small circles of DNA found in bacteria.

Plasmids replicate independently of the bacterial chromosome.

Replication often produces 50
100 copies of a recombinant
plasmid in each cell.

Pieces of foreign DNA can be added within a plasmid to create a
recombinant plasmid.

The defendant stated that the blood on his clothing was his.

DNA Fingerprinting Basics

Different individuals carry different alleles.

Most alleles useful for DNA fingerprinting differ on the basis of the
number of repetitive DNA sequences they contain.
