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

    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.
