Title: Genetic material and chromosomal processing and manipulation methods

Abstract: The presently claimed invention applies to a genetic material processing and manipulation method and related product. The claimed invention relates to a method for changing the inherited characteristics of a cell through chromosome processing treatment. In a preferred embodiment, `genomic surgery` is applied to source genetic material 101. Micro-beam cutting takes place on target genetic material 103, which is moved by way of micro-beam transport to a destination location adjacent to desired target genetic material 105. Source and target genetic material are welded during a micro-beam welding step, resulting in a combined or new chromosome combination 125. The combined or new chromosome combination 125 is transferred into receptor cell by three ways. The presently claimed invention provides a high quality alternate approach to directed genetic recombination without requiring the use of restriction enzymes and is used for chromosomal repair, removal of defects and new organism creation.
