Economic Impact of Recombinant DNA Technology

  • J. Leslie Glick

Abstract

Recombinant DNA technology (RDT) is a generic technology. It can be applied to the development of a wide range of product lines in diverse industrial settings. It enables one to design microbes with genetic capabilities to form products which otherwise could not be synthesized by means of fermentation.
