Boyer and Cohen (1973) established through their spectacular practical demonstration i.e., by introducing a small segment of DNA (usually of foreign origin) into a bacterial plasmid* that eventually paved the way towards rapid and remarkable advances in recombinant DNA technology (rDNA technology). The resulting hybrid plasmid obtained in this manner was subjected to further growth in the environment of the most common as well as the fast-producing bacterium E. coli. Importantly, this altogether unique and splendid technique ultimately caused the evolution of recombinant DNA (i.e., hybrid DNA is generated by piecing together the various segments of DNA obtained from a variety of sources; also invariably known as rDNA) technology.
