Chapter 20: DNA technology and Genomics We will not be covering every part of this chapter in detail. Instead, I will be giving you several examples about how DNA technology is currently being used. Please read the specific pages mentioned for each topic. I. Example of RFLP analysis (read page 386 about restriction enzymes; see also Fig. 20.3; Read pages 392-394; Read pages 402-403 and Fig. 20.15) A. Example: Management of Black rhino subspecies found in Africa (Ashley) B. Restriction Fragment Length Polymorphisms (RFLP) 1. Digest DNA with restriction enzymes 2. Why is this useful?
