PCR Mutagenesis

submitted by: abnova

Abnova - PCR can be used to make changes to the nucleotide sequence of DNA. This is called PCR mutagenesis. Site-direct mutagenesis is one kind of PCR mutagenesis, which introduces a mutation at a specific location on the DNA strand. More videos, visit Abnova!

Competent Cell Preparation

submitted by: abnova

Abnova - Competent cells are those that possess more easily altered cell walls that DNA can be passed through easily. Because DNA is hydrophilic, it will not normally pass through membrane. In order to make these cells readily incorporate foreign DNA, they must first be made "competent" to take up foreign DNA. More videos, visit Abnova!
