A Review on Algal Plasmid DNA | Chapter 06 | Advances and Trends in Biotechnology and Genetics Vol. 3

Plasmid plays a crucial role in molecular biotechnology as vectors. Once it is believed that plasmids are found only in prokaryotes but the development in molecular Bio-technology proves that plasmids are also found in eukaryotes such as yeasts and some algae. Several researches are carried out to isolate the plasmid DNA from both micro and macro algae. This review gives an overview about the plasmid DNA of various Algae.
