Study Guide 13 Gene Mutation and Repair After these lectures you should be able to: Answer the following questions from your textbook: o Chapter 17 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 9, 13, 15, 16, 17, 18, 20, 21 Identify and explain substitutions, insertions and deletions Explain why frame shifts may have such tremendous impacts on proteins Identify and explain the phenotypic effects of mutations Compare and contrast somatic and germ-line mutations. Describe expanding trinucleotide repeats and indicate how they may come about. Compare and contrast the two means of obtaining suppressor mutations. Describe how mutations are made during replication. List and describe five different DNA repair mechanisms. Which of these is found only in prokaryotic organisms? Describe and use a complementation test to determine the number of genes

    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.
