Lab Exercises #3 and #4: Molecular Biology I and II 1) E.Coli is the name of the bacteria that will grow on the plates. 2) A plasmid is not a living cell; rather it is DNA that is NOT chromosomal. It is circular and double stranded. The plasmid can glow, and it is different from the genomic DNA because they are separate. Also, the plasmid is not like the genomic DNA because it is not connected to the bacterial cell wall through proteins. 3) The LB agar plates are called a phenotypic identification because if there is no growth on the plate where there is LB agar, than there must be something else there that is not allowing the bacteria to grow. LB is Luria Broth which promotes bacterial growth. 4) If E.Coli has the plasmid pAMP, then it would be resistant to ampicillin. pAMP could grow on LB, LB-AMP, and LB-AMP/ARA. There would be no growth on the LB-KAN plate. 5) If E.Coli has the plasmid pKAN, then it would be resistant to kanamycin. pKAN could grow on LB and LB-KAN. There would be no growth on the LB- AMP or LB-AMP/ARA plate. 6) If E.Coli has the plasmid pGLO, then it would be resistant to ampicillin. pGLO could grow on LB, LB-AMP, and LB-AMP/ARA. It would glow on the LB-AMP/ARA plate. There would be no growth on the LB-KAN plate.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
