Question 1

Question 2

Question 3

Question 4

Q1.Which organism is genetically engineered to produce insulin?

1/4

Q2.Put the stages of genetic engineering in the correct order.

The gene is inserted into a vector (a plasmid or a virus)

The organism develops with the required characteristics

Enzymes isolate the desired gene

The vector is used to transfer the gene into the other organism’s cell at an early development stage
