- recombinant DNA n genetically engineered DNA usu. incorporating DNA from more than one species of organism
* * *DNA that contains genes from different sources that have been combined by the techniques of genetic engineering rather than by breeding experiments. Genetic engineering is therefore also known as recombinant DNA technology.
* * *a composite DNA molecule constructed in vitro by joining a fragment of foreign DNA with a vector DNA molecule capable of replicating in host cells.
