Biol223_Smith_Exam_II 13 May 2005 PAGE 2 of 6 Exam # Question 1 for 15 points The diagram below represents a hypothetical human chromosomal region, with the locations of restriction sites indicated by vertical lines and location in kb (bp 1 is beginning of region). A probe spanning 2-5 kb is used in a Southern blot. The sites at 1 kb and 16 kb are found in everyone, but the human population contains individuals with every possible combination of restriction sites 3, 4, and 8 present or not. a) How many different combinations are possible? b) For each combination, what would be the size of fragments revealed by the probe in the Southern blot? c) What is the proper term to describe these differences? (spelled out for full credit) Question 2 for 10 points A section of a genome is mapped with probes to SNPs: A, B, C, D, E, F, and G. In reality, the probes are located in alphabetical order, with distances A-B = 1 kb, B-C = 0.2 kb, C- D = 5 kb, D-E = 1.2 kb, E-F = 0.01 kb, F-G = 1.5 kb. If the genomic DNA is randomly fragmented, and fragments in the size range 1.8 - 2.2 kb are isolated and cloned into a plasmid library:
