Foreign DNA is defined as genetic material that derives from another organism of the same or a different species. The natural environment is heavily "contaminated" with such foreign DNA, and mammals, like other organisms, are frequently exposed to foreign DNA in their environment, notably by ingesting their daily food supply. By necessity, the gastrointestinal tract of all mammalian organisms is also constantly in contact with foreign DNA. This book investigates the phenomena and mechanisms involved in the interaction of foreign DNA with mammalian cells and organisms.
