Insertion of a DNA Sample Into a Plasmid

A piece of target DNA can be inserted into a plasmid if both the circular plasmid and the target DNA have been cleaved by the same restriction nuclease in such a way as to create sticky ends. The newly created recombinant molecule is stabilized with the DNA ligase enzyme which repairs nicks in the backbone of the DNA molecule.
