Cloning Vectors for Introducing Genes into Host Cells
The introduction of a foreign DNA into a host cell in many cases requires the use of a vector. Vectors are DNA molecules used to transfer a gene into a host (microbial, plant, animal) cell, and to provide control elements for replication and expression. The vector to be used is determined by the type of host cells and the objectives of the cloning experiment.
