Abstract

This lesson teaches how a specific gene can be identified from among the thousands of genes that can be cloned from an organism.

Objectives for Gene Cloning Part 2

At the conclusion of this lesson you should be able to:

  1. Describe the library screening process including why it is important in gene cloning.
  2. Determine which screening method would be appropriate for a given gene library.
  3. Compare traditional gene cloning with modern methods of automated DNA sequencing and database analysis techniques for gene cloning.
