Hi,
Would an E-coli with recombinant insulin gene be considered a transgenic organism???

This was in the Catholic Paper, they asked me to name what a bacteria with a recombinant gene inserted into it was. Is this a transgenic organism!!
PLEASE

Desperate here!!!

yes it is... transgenic species are those treated using recombinant DNA techology... e. coli genetically modified to produce insulin would be considered as one of those ...

A transgenic organism is one which takes any product from another organism
