recombinant DNA

[‚rē¦käm·bə·nənt ¦dē¦en′ā]
(cell and molecular biology)
Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA) that has been altered (caused to recombine) by rearrangement of its sequence, addition or deletion of DNA segments, or introduction of foreign DNA segments (for example, a gene from another organism introduced into an organism's genome).
