How are transformants selected from nontransformants?

1. Presence of more than one recognition site in the vector DNA.

2. Presence of alien DNA into the vector DNA results into insertional inactivation of selectable marker.

3. Antibiotic resistance gene gets inactivated due to insertion of alien DNA.

4. Both 2 and 3.
