Recombinant DNA and Hybridoma Technology


This series of slides introduces recombinant DNA technology and the hybridoma monoclonal antibody technology, which contribute to the creation of modern therapeutic treatments for cancer, autoimmune disorders and a host of other diseases.

Slides are provided on the link below. The first few slides illustrate the principles and the step by step “cut and paste” procedures for recombinant DNA technology. The remaining slides depict the hybridoma technology used in the production of monoclonal antibody with animals. Later on, recombinant monoclonal antibodies (rAbs) came to light, which are generated in vitro using synthetic genes.
