Why Validating Your Plasmids is Key to a Successful Transgenic, and How You Can Do It Too.

Plasmids are a key tool in molecular biology. These circular pieces of DNA, also called “vectors” or “constructs”,  can be engineered to contain large made-to-order stretches of synthetic DNA. We design plasmids when we need to insert large stretches of synthetic DNA into the genome to create a model organism expressing, for instance,  a fluorescent …
