Ethical issues for recombinant DNA address concerns that organisms and food containing recombinant DNA are potentially dangerous. Most scientists consider recombinant DNA technology to be safe, while various advocacy and... More »

Recombinant DNA techniques allow certain genes to be directly transplanted from one organism into distantly related species, which has the effect of imbuing the recipient organism with a new trait such as resistance to c... More » Science Biology Molecular Biology & DNA

When DNA is denatured, the hydrogen bonds that hold the double helix together break apart, separating the DNA molecule into two single strands. Denaturation occurs as the temperature increases, according to Ian VanLare, ... More »

Supercoiled DNA is a length of DNA that has been subjected to a twisting stress that has distorted its normal shape. As the twisted ladder of the double helix is twisted beyond its normal state, the torsion forces the DN... More » Science Biology Molecular Biology & DNA
