Any change in the DNA sequence of an organism is called a __mutation______________________. 3. In the plant experiments, we will be working with a reporter gene called GUS gene________________________. 4. When this gene is expressed it can cleave a substrate to produce the color _indigo______________________. 5. In order to see the color better, you will extract the green chlorophyll with ? _______________________. 6. The part of a gene that controls where and when it is expressed (is on or off) is called the _promoter gene_____________________. 7.
