Discussion Section for MCDB120 1. Describe the fundamental difference between the products of mitosis vs. meiosis. Compare the processes with regard to the number of cell divisions and DNA replications. 2. Prophase in meiosis differs from prophase of mitosis in what very important way? How are the terms “synapsis” and “chiasmata” related? 3. How does Anaphase I of meiosis differ from Anaphase in mitosis? 4. Define the term “independent assortment.” When in meiosis does this take place? How does it contribute to genetic diversity among the haploid gametes? 5. Describe the difference between introns, exons and intergenic regions. Which one is still present in the mature mRNA transcript? 6. Where are transcriptional control elements generally found in a eukaryotic gene? Where in the transcript do we find information that dictates the mRNA’s destination? 7. Describe the process of poly-A tail addition, or “polyadenylation.” 8.
