What is plasmid DNA?

Asked by vahul95 13th June 2008, 3:53 PM
Answered by Expert

Plasmid is a circular, double-stranded, extra chromosomal unit of DNA that replicates within a cell,  independent of the chromosomal DNA.

Plasmids are ubiquitous in prokaryotes and has also been identified in a number of eukaryotes.

Plasmids are most often found in bacteria and are used in recombinant DNA research to transfer genes between cells.
