A cosmid is a


A
naturally occurring vector
loader
B
vector constructed using plasmid DNA and cos site of  Lambda phage DNA
loader
C
plasmid DNA with RNA
loader
D
none of the above
loader

Solution

The correct option is B vector constructed using plasmid DNA and cos site of  Lambda phage DNA
Cosmids can be used to clone DNA fragments up to 45 kb in length. A cosmid is a type of hybrid plasmid that contains a Lambda phage cos sequence. The DNA sequences of Cosmids (cos sites + plasmid = cosmids) are originally from the lambda phage. They are often used as a cloning vector in genetic engineering
