- the bacterial DNA is prokaryotic and the process of transcription and translation of DNA into RNA INto proteins is different in bacteria and and human.
- the gene on DNA are expressed as protiens .when the organisms is in a situation,where it brequires that particular protien to survive in that situation.
- Human DNA cannot be directly inserted into bacterial genome as the lenth of both the DNA are different.
- only selected genes,which code for a protein can be introduce into plasmid to replicate and express itself as proteins ,which is the main principle of genetic engineering and biotechnology.
