In biology, recombinant DNA is "biologically active DNA which has been formed by the in vitro joining of segments of DNA from different sources. It includes the recombination joint or edge of a heteroduplex region where two recombining DNA molecules are connected."[1]

Recombinant proteins are "proteins prepared by recombinant DNA technology."[2]
