1  of  4 Name: Adrienne Jasper Week 1 Lab Worksheet SCI214 – Integrated Science Lab 1: Biotechnology  – Control groups, and independent and dependent variables. Instructions At   least   three   experiments   must   be   conducted   using   an   appropriate  experimental design.     Each experiment should be repeated   three times  under   no low and high infestation conditions, and the average taken for the  values (sum of observations/3).  Record your data on the data table below  and answer the lab questions.  This lab exercise/worksheet is valued at a  maximum of 40 points. Prelab Questions (2 points each) Answer the following four questions with as much detail as possible by entering your response in  the box below the question. Please complete these questions before conducting the experiment. Question 1:   What is the European Cork Borer and why would farmers be concerned if any were present  in their corn fields? Response to Question 1 The ECB is a major corn insect pest and if they were present in the farmers corn fields it spell disaster for  the entire field because the ECB’s females will lay 600 eggs, when they hatch will begin by eating the leaf  surface then bore into the midribs of the leaves then to the stalk and then the ear. Question 2:   Bacillus thuringiensis   is a bacterium that produces a crystalline poison that is deadly to  certain insects.  What is the name of the gene that codes for the protein and how have geneticists used  this information to combat infestations caused by this insect? Response to Question 2
