Keep the following in mind in using this exam. These are exam questions from Spring 2006 when Dr. Bleiweiss last taught 101. He did not cover all of the same topics as he is covering this semester and those that he did cover the last time he taught 101 were not necessarily covered with the exact same focus or depth. Therefore, realize that not all topics covered so far in this course are represented on this exam nor are those here represented in ratio indicative of how they were covered this semester. This sample exam is provided to give you an idea of the TYPES of questions Dr. Bleiweiss has asked. Expect 4-5 questions per lecture on the exam. Some questions may combine material from more than one lecture. There will be 3-4 questions from Dr. Thoma’s introductory material (lecture 1) and one or two questions on the rabies article. Note that answers are NOT provided with this document. You need to figure out the answers. Do not e-mail Dr. Bleiweiss, your TAs or the other professors in this class for answers. Do feel free to set up a meeting with Dr. Bleiweiss or go to discussion if you have specific questions. This exam is ONE TOOL for studying, do NOT use it as your sole means of study. It is not meant to take the place of attending lectures and discussions. 1. What is a genome? a. The complete complement of an organism’s genes b.
