Recombinant DNA is an important part of genetics today.


Recombinant DNA (rDNA) is a kind of DNA molecule that is formed by the genetic recombination of DNA from multiple sources to create such a sequence with desired characters that is originally not found in genome.
This is achieved by the use of vectors through various processes of transformation.
rDNA is sometimes called Chimera.
