Gene injection

 

Gene therapy started initially as gene injection. This involved several strategies for incorporating genes into somatic cells or into early embryos. When an organism incorporates an alien gene it is then said to be transgenic. Genes can be used to treat congenital abnormalities which are caused by mutation through the replacement by cDNA or polynucleotide sequences.
