Bio 97 Genetics Discussion Worksheet #1 1.) DNA polymerization occurs in what direction? 2.) The DNA template is read in what direction? 3.) DNA is said to have polarity.  Describe why and also the groups that you would expect to  find at each end of a single strand of DNA. 4.) You were recently hired to work at a biotech company and your PI is studying the effects  of Drug X on gene regulation.  You are asked to extract total RNA from rat tissue, convert  it all into cDNA, and perform PCR in order to determine which genes are up/down  regulated.  On the axis below, draw out a diagram (graph) showing each PCR temperature
