PCR involves repeated cycles of PCR involves repeated cycles of a 3 step process: a 3 step process: 1. Denature --PCR mixture is heated to around 95 ° C to separate the complementary DNA strands from each other. 2. Anneal --temperature is reduced to 50-60 ° C to allow the primers to bind to the template DNA. 3. Elongate --temperature is raised slightly to about 70 ° C to allow the polymerase to replicate the template DNA starting at the primers.

Sample genetics problem – In squirrels, eye color is determined by a sex-linked gene with two alleles: (R) for red eyes that are completely dominant to (r) for white eyes. In turn, fur color is determined by two autosomal genes that are epistatic such that A_B_ individuals are brown, whereas all others are white. A trihybrid female is crossed with a red-eyed male who is doubly heterozygous for fur color. Predict the phenotypes and phenotype frequencies for their offspring.

by a single gene with two alleles: (S) for square nails, which is completely dominant to (s) for round nails. In turn, ear color is determined by a single gene with two alleles: (G) for gray, which is completely dominant to (g) for white ears. The two genes are incompletely linked to the same autosome with a map distance of 16 cM. A doubly heterozygous TRANS male is test crossed. Given this test cross, predict the phenotype frequencies for this test cross. Sample genetics problem –
