I J K 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 + + - - + The 5 deletion mutations are used to map a point mutation. A (+) signifies that the point mutation can recombine with the deletion to give WT progeny. A (-) signifies that the point mutation cannot recombine with the deletion to give WT progeny. Which point mutation (1-9) best fits the data.

2/8/10 3 Central Dogma DNA to RNA to Protein A mutation in the DNA causes a change in the DNA sequence. This will be transcribed into an incorrect RNA which will be translated into a polypeptide chain containing some wrong amino acids. This mutated protein can have full, partial or no activity. The absence of the correct protein causes the mutant phenotype. COMPLEMENTATION In Eukaryotes a + x + b a + a + + b + b a phenotype b phenotype wild type phenotype Complementation between mutants can also occur in phage. Complementation analysis lets us ask if 2 mutations are located in the same gene (do they encode the same polypeptide). Benzer asked if all of the rII mutants belong to one gene. Do they all mutate the same polypeptide. THIS IS NOT MAPPING THE GENE LOCATION, IT IS TESTING THE GENE FUNCTION.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    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.
