DNA technology- gene tech

Gene Technologies

Which of the following statements about gene technology are true?

  1. DNA Ligase cuts open the gene of interest in plant cells.

  2. To create genetically modified plant cells and genetically modified bacteria, the same method is used.

  3. A plasmid with cut ends is known as a recombinant plasmid.

A 1 only

B 2 only

C 1 and 2 only

D 1, 2 and 3

E none of the above

why is the 2nd statement wrong ?

i am not fully sure so correct me if I’m wrong:)
plant cells contain linear DNA but bacteria cells have circular DNA so I would say their process of being modified should be different.
let me know what you think

yeah i know that, but the process can’t be any different right

well if the structure is even slightly different it usually changes. I think it doesn’t ask about the general process. instead wants you to know the difference between the cells so you can conclude the answer

The process is different as part of the steps involve using the two different types of DNA :))
