Photos Details


DNA recombination is the exchange of DNA strands to produce new nucleotide sequence arrangements. Recombination occurs typically, though not exclusively, between regions of similar sequence by breaking and rejoining DNA segments, and is essential for generating genetic diversity and for maintaining genome integrity. It is the basic principle for gene editing with engineered nucleases such as CRISPR and TALEN.
