an antibiotic resistance gene in a vector usually helps in the selection of which type of cells? a. transformed cells b. recombinant cells

Selectable marker genes are antibiotic resistance genes that help to select the host cells that contain the vector (transformants) and eliminate the non-tranformants. Antibiotic resistance genes such as ampicillin, tetracycline are useful selectable markers for E.coli. Thus, antibiotic resistance genes in a vector usually helps in the selection of transformed cells.
