E. coli
• Used because it is easily grown and its genomics are
• Need to eliminate endotoxin from products
• Cells must be lysed to get product

Therapeutic Applications
• Subunit vaccines
• Nonpathogenic viruses carrying genes for pathogen's
antigens as vaccines
• Gene therapy to replace defective or missing genes
• Human Genome Project
• Nucleotides have been sequenced
• Human Proteome Project may provide diagnostics
and treatments

Safety Issues and Ethics
• Avoid accidental release
• Genetically modified crops must be safe for
consumption and for the environment
• Who will have access to an individual's genetic
