This collection of six brief commentaries and eight articles describes work in plasmids, bacteriophages or viruses used in techniques that transport foreign genes into recipient cells. These "genetic vectors" include a functional replicator See port replicator.
replicator - Any construct that acts to produce copies of itself; this could be a living organism, an idea (see meme), a program (see quine, worm, wabbit, fork bomb, and virus), a pattern in a cellular automaton (see life), or (speculatively) a robot or and contain a genetic marker genetic marker
A gene phenotypically associated with a particular, easily identified trait and used to identify an individual or cell carrying that gene. , making it relatively easy to recognize them. They papers cover transcriptional profiling of cardiac development, genetic vectors and replication-incompetent adenoviral vectors in vaccination, recombinant retroviral vectors as model probes for antiviral antiviral /an·ti·vi·ral/ (-vi´ral) destroying viruses or suppressing their replication, or an agent that so acts.
adj. screening studies, molecular approaches to study genotype-phenotype correlation in continuous gene disorders, bacterial artificial chromosome A bacterial artificial chromosome (BAC) is a DNA construct, based on a fertility plasmid (or F-plasmid), used for transforming and cloning in bacteria, usually E. coli. vectors, genetic vectors for Corynecbacterineae and emerging vectors and targeting methods for viral genetic therapy in gliomas. Articles include illustrations and the editor provides a subject index. Readers may prefer to use the abstracts rather than the preface for quick reviews.
