. Chimeric DNA is
A: Gene clone
B: Recombinant - DNA
D: Vector shuttle
- Recombinant DNA molecules are sometimes called chimeric DNA, because they can be made of material from two different species, like the mythical chimera.
- A chimera is essentially a single organism that is made up of cells from two or more individuals—that is, it contains two sets of DNA, with the code to make two separate organisms.
- R-DNA technology uses palindromic sequences and leads to the production of sticky and blunt ends.
- So, the correct answer is 'Recombinant - DNA'.
Final Answer :
Option B : Recombinant - DNA
