Where can I find more information on lecture 23 slide 13 recombination of DNA in two plasmids. I am rather confused on the process of cutting the plasmid with a restriction enzyme and how to figure out where the sites of the cuts are? Thank you!

Hey Ali-
restriction enzymes require a specific series of five or six bases in a row to bind. When they bind, they cut open the DNA sequence. You can read more about them and see some examples in wikipedia:
