Cloning Vector

Science / Genetics / Cloning Vector: Dna molecule originating from a virus, a plasmid, or the cell of a higher organism into which another dna fragment of appropriate size can be integrated without loss of the vectors capacity for self- replication: vectors introduce foreign dna into host cells, where it can be reproduced in large quantities. Examples are plasmids, cosmids, and yeast artificial chromosomes: vectors are often recombinant molecules containing dna sequences from several sources.
