Plasmids are small rings of non-chromosomal (and thus non-essential) DNA found in some bacteria. They are not found in human cells. Due to the ease with which they replicate and travel between cells they are often used as “vectors” or carriers of genetic material that scientists wish to clone.
A Plasmid is a linear or circular double-stranded DNA that is capable of replicating independently of the chromosomal DNA.
They are ubiquitous in Porkaryotes and found in most Eukaryotes – They are not naturally occurring in human cells.
