Recombinant DNA technology - The Chimera

Genetic Engineering - using recombinant DNA technology to modify an organism’s DNA to achieve desirable traits.

DNA sequencing methods

DNA sequencing is a process of determining the order of the four chemical building blocks - called "nitrogenous bases" - that make up the DNA molecule.

Biotechnology is the use of artificial methods to modify the genetic material of living organisms or cells to produce novel compounds or to perform new functions. 

To accomplish that biotechnologists must be able to extract, manipulate, and analyze nucleic acids.
