A transgene is a gene or genetic material that is used by way of genetic engineering techniques to manipulate genes in a living organism. It is used to change genes of interest by isolating and introducing a gene sequence from one organism to another one. It can alter the phenotype of an organism by modifying at the DNA level to study the function or pathology involved with that particular gene.
