gene splicing

the technique of inserting genetic material, in the form of DNA, into an existing DNA molecule. This is commonly performed in genetic engineering when genetic material from one organism is introduced into another organism, usually of a different species. The resultant recombinant DNA may create new sources of drugs or similar organic substances from microorganisms or may correct genetic defects.
