Recombinant DNA technology, also known as genetic engineering, enables the transfer of genes across different organisms. It has expanded the possibilities of gene transfer and manipulation. The statements can be explained as follows:

The technology allows genes to be transferred across different species of plants. This means that genes from one plant species can be inserted into the genome of another plant species.

Genes can also be transferred from animals to plants using recombinant DNA technology. This involves the insertion of animal genes into the genome of plants to confer specific traits or characteristics.

Recombinant DNA technology allows the transfer of genes from microorganisms to higher organisms. This includes the transfer of genes from bacteria, fungi, or other microorganisms to plants or animals.
