The term “vector” refers to a virus, bacterium, bacteriophage, etc. which is used to express the gene to be expressed. The genetic material is then inserted into the host cell (in our case the bacterium), and then the cell becomes a “vector” which enables the gene to be expressed.
The technology that recombinant DNA is used for is called “recombinant DNA technology.” It’s been around for a while now, but is still quite new. As it was originally developed in the 1970’s it was very slow to advance, and there was a lot of pressure to do it fast. Recombinant DNA technology is still not easy because it requires a lot of specialized equipment, and it’s not practical to use outside of a lab.
The word vector is used here to mean a vector of DNA or RNA that can be inserted into a cell, which is the way it fits into a cell’s DNA, DNA sequence, and/or RNA sequence.
I’m going to turn this into an analogy: a virus is a virus that doesn’t infect your cells, and there’s a chance that if you insert one virus into a cell, it will infect all of your cells, but it won’t infect your cells if you don’t.
This is sort of the definition of a vector, the virus would be considered a vector because it would pass on its genetic information from one cell (the original cell) to all of its possible future cells. However, vectors are not the same thing as viruses. The word vector is used often in biology to describe a cell that has been altered by inserting a DNA sequence. In the context of recombinant DNA technology, the vector is the DNA sequence that is used to create the virus.
With vector technology, your gene or gene-sequence is used to create the virus that will invade a particular cell. However, vectors are not the same thing as viruses. A virus is the single cell or single cell lineage that is capable of reproducing itself. A vector is a more complex system, consisting of many cell lines.
The main point to remember is that you can change the number of cells in a cell without changing the DNA sequence. You can even change the sequence of the cell with the help of a computer program, and vice versa.
Vector means a variety of things, including the ability to infect cells, the ability to change the DNA sequence of the target cell, and the ability to make a virus (a virus is a modified version of the cell line or genome that is capable of reproducing itself). Vectors can even be created by using viruses as vectors, as in the case of the HIV/AIDS virus that was created by recombinant DNA technology.
The HIVAIDS virus that was created by recombinant DNA technology. Vectors are used to create a number of different types of viruses, including the Hepatitis viruses that cause Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C.
That’s true. The term “vector” was first used in 1838 by Dr. Robert Koch, who gave the first description of a virus in his book “Kolbe’s Virologie.” It was one of very few pieces of published medical information that was published in German before the Second World War. The word “vector” wasn’t even in common use in England until the 1960s.
