Gene Targeting

The Homologous Recombination Process, Adding Or Deleting Genetic Material, Therapeutic Potential Of Gene Targeting

Gene targeting is a method for modifying the structure of a specific gene without removing it from its natural environment in the chromosome in a living cell. This process involves the construction of a piece of DNA, known as a gene targeting vector, which is then introduced into the cell where it replaces or modifies the normal chromosomal gene through the process of homologous recombination.
