Cloning vs Expression Vector; Round 1[edit]

This article says the main purpose of a cloning vector is for colled expression of a particular gene, but if that is the case, how does it differ from an expression vector? --Username132 21:29, 19 February 2006 (UTC)

expression vectors are more tightly controlled and are posed to make optimum amounts of product such as the manufacturing of insulin.

Cloning vector, vector DNA, expression vector[edit]

There sure are a lot of stub "vector" articles to do with genetic engineering. Perhaps they should be merged, or at least reorganised? -- Hongooi 06:19, 2 July 2007 (UTC)

Contrasting different vectors[edit]

I think it would be appropriate to contrast the practical applications of the common vectors on this page, briefly summing up which would be preferred in what situation. Akita86 (talk) 15:32, 25 January 2009 (UTC)


In the template there are cloning vectors which do not fit in well will the list: Could someone make a new template? or list waht to put in it--Squidonius (talk) 16:05, 13 April 2008 (UTC)

Concerning the diction "overhang" in the introductory paragraph[edit]

It is the first time I have heard of the word overhang. It is only after some verifications that I have found out that it meant "sticky ends".

I would like someone to confirm if what I think is right, so we can make the intro a little bit clearer :)

Yes, that's what it means, although in reality, you don't need sticky ends or overhang to ligate since you can ligate blunt ends, so that part is inaccurate. I'll adjust the wording. Hzh (talk) 19:40, 3 November 2016 (UTC)
