This is the practice of inserting the DNA of another species into an organism's DNA so that the organism gains a new trait.
This is the practice of producing a genetically identical cell or organism
This is the practice of cutting DNA and separating it by the size of the pieces
This is the process of creating a unique image of an individual's alleles based on their size and using that image to identify an individual's DNA
What is the name of the international effort to sequence a human's DNA sequence?

Which kitten is most likely the offspring of this cat?
Which of these is NOT a use for DNA Fingerprinting?
Identifying the person whose DNA was left at a crime scene
Determining the father of a child

Figuring out which species are more closely related
Why did scientists edit the genes of bacteria to produce insulin?
Because the bacteria were diabetic
Because bacteria have simple DNA that is easier to manipulate, making it easy to produce insulin in a lab
Because bacteria's complex DNA was perfect for insulin production
Because insulin has no use outside of a lab setting
Bacterial DNA is _________ than human DNA
