Each plasmid contains just one or a few genes. Bacteria in nature sometimes exchange plasmids, and Cohen had developed a way to imitate this process, removing plasmids from bacteria and making other bacteria take them up on demand. Back in California in the spring of 1973, Boyer and Cohen began experiments that combined the techniques they had developed. They used a restriction enzyme from Boyer’s laboratory to cut open some of Cohen’s plasmids. The “sticky ends” produced by the process allowed them to join the two plasmids together to make a single larger one, even though the plasmids had come from two different strains of bacteria.
