How to make a "prokaryotic protein factory"


                        Viruses can infect living cells

                        Bacteria produce restriction enzymes to cut up viral DNA

                        Bacteria take up plasmids


                        Cut out source DNA with restriction enzyme

            Open up plasmid with same restriction enzyme

                        Mix "prepared" DNA and plasmids

                        Mix plasmids with plasmid-less bacteria

                        Kill off other bacteria

                        Culture remaining bacteria
