6. Genetic engineering As we have seen, gene-cloning processes enable us to produce large amounts of a DNA sequence so that its function can be studied. These technologies can also be applied in medicine and agriculture to genetically engineer production of biological proteins or whole organisms with new or modified traits. At the heart of these applications is the capability to produce proteins from cloned genes in host cells. These proteins are called recombinant proteins as they are produced from recombinant DNA.

1. What is a fungus? Defining the fungi Fungi are peculiar organisms. They do not seem to move, their fruit bodies pop up overnight, and they have no visible means of feeding themselves. Early botanists considered the immobility of mushrooms as a sign of simple plant life, which explains why mycology—the study of fungi—is included in the traditional purview of botany. In contrast to plants, however, fungi do not have chlorophyll, lack leaves and roots, and never form flowers, fruits, and seeds. The combination of these non-animal and non-plant characteristics with the poisonous and hallucinatory nature of some mushrooms explains
