    Enzymes are used to cut out useful genes from one organism and place in a gap in another organism. This is done at an early stage of development

    Key words are: enzymes, cut and early stage

    Enzymes are proteins which act as biological catalysts. For unit 1 you don't need to know what they are, just the name.
    A catalyst is something which speeds up chemical reactions.

    Excellent notes but make sure you get that it is done at an early stage of development/growth as it's usually a point on the mark scheme.
