Unformatted text preview: 4-2-08 Jamal Weaver Bio Lab Bioinformatics Assignment The organism Corpulentus maritus was a very mysterious being and was hard to narrow down its true identity. There we no hypotheses into what the organism might be but there are many independent variables which were tested which prove the true identity of Corpulentus maritus the candidate species. I expected to find the exact identity of Corpulentus maritus by using the nucleotide database BLAST. The data indicated that the candidate species is in fact an organism by the name of Aspergillus oryzae. The results directly correlated Corpulentus maritus with that of Aspergillus oryzae, the data obtained from the database provided numerous numerical correlations in the regions of Kilodalton size, optimum temperature for enzyme action, and optimum pH for enzyme action. There was one unexpected result and that was the discrepancy of the optimum temperature. The observed optimum temperature for the Corpulentus maritus was 58 degrees Celsius while Aspergillus Oryzae is 50 degrees Celsius. This can be explained through simple biological fluctuations or testing methods. The temperature situation can be tested through multiple experiments to verify and have a distinct answer to the problem. Based on this experiment possible questions that may be asked are the exact sequence of the two candidates exact in nature and if not what are the major differences. ...
