This led to tensions growing in the city. The use of Plasmids evolved into a genetic arms race  , as both sides of the fighting further equipped themselves. Field tests were conducted by Sinclair Solutions on more powerful and diverse Plasmids and Tonics. The population degenerated into insanity as side-effects of ADAM overuse became endemic.
Ryan finally resorted to adding mental control pheromones into his products to influence the Splicers and win the war against Atlas. An Alternative to Injections Edit Production notes. Before the civil war, Suchong worked on a new form of Plasmid which used oral ingestion rather than injection into the bloodstream. This method, while better from a marketing standpoint, required use of at least ten times the previous quantity of ADAM, and Fontaine recalled the production because of the excessive cost in raw genetic material.
The idea itself was exploited by Jeremiah Fink , a businessman using trans-dimensional technologies to plagiarize scientific wonders from the neighboring reality, to create his own Vigors.

New York: W. Freeman ; Search term Section 7. In the case of DNA , this is feasible for relatively short molecules such as the genomes of small viruses. But genomes of even the simplest cells are much too large to directly analyze in detail at the molecular level. The problem is compounded for complex organisms.
See Article History Plasmid, in microbiology, an extrachromosomal genetic element that occurs in many bacterial strains. Plasmids are circular deoxyribonucleic acid DNA molecules that replicate independently of the bacterial chromosome. They are not essential for the bacterium but may confer a selective advantage. One class of plasmids, colicinogenic or Col factors, determines the production of proteins called colicins, which have antibiotic activity and can kill other bacteria.
History[ edit ] The term plasmid was introduced in by the American molecular biologist Joshua Lederberg to refer to "any extrachromosomal hereditary determinant. In order for plasmids to replicate independently within a cell, they must possess a stretch of DNA that can act as an origin of replication. The self-replicating unit, in this case, the plasmid, is called a replicon. A typical bacterial replicon may consist of a number of elements, such as the gene for plasmid-specific replication initiation protein Rep , repeating units called iterons , DnaA boxes, and an adjacent AT-rich region. A few types of plasmids can also insert into the host chromosome, and these integrative plasmids are sometimes referred to as episomes in prokaryotes. Many of the genes carried by a plasmid are beneficial for the host cells, for example: enabling the host cell to survive in an environment that would otherwise be lethal or restrictive for growth. Some of these genes encode traits for antibiotic resistance or resistance to heavy metal, while others may produce virulence factors that enable a bacterium to colonize a host and overcome its defences or have specific metabolic functions that allow the bacterium to utilize a particular nutrient, including the ability to degrade recalcitrant or toxic organic compounds.
