•DNA is cut to study gene

•Restriction enzymes are used- they cut when they find specific nucleotide sequences

•The more restriction sites the restriction enzyme finds, the more pieces are cut.
More pieces = shorter length

•Nucleotide sequences 4-8 base pair long

•Cuts straight across- blunt ends

•Sometimes made to stagger cut, to make “sticky ends” that work like Velcro ready to hook onto opposite sides. Used in Biotechnology
