Lab #1 1. What does the PCR do? A. It amplifies a single copy of a segment of DNA across several orders of magnitude, and generates thousands to millions of copies of a DNA sequence. 2. Why is PCR helpful to forensic scientists? A. PCR can be used as a tool in genetic fingerprinting. PCR technology can identify any one person from millions of others by their genetic information. 3. What other applications does PCR have? A. Genotyping, cloning, mutation detection, sequencing, microarrays, forensics, and paternity testing 4. What are the three stages in the PCR test? A. Denaturing, Annealing, and Synthesizing. 5. Do you think you would like to work with DNA evidence as you did in this game? Why or why not? A. I feel like it would be cool to work with PCR testing, but my favorite aspect of forensics would still be doing autopsies. Lab #2 1. Who were the Romanovs? What happened to them? A. The Romanovs were the Russian rulers from 1618-1918. The family was executed and buried in a mass grave in Siberia, but two of the bodies were missing when the grave was exhumed.

    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.
