D. 2 Which of the following statements is INCORRECT with respect to transposons? A. Have been used by scientists to map the bacterial genome B. Can move bacterial genes around the genome C. Encode transposase D. Serve as sites of recombination E. Create a short, direct duplication of the target sequence at each end of the inserted element A 3 Answer the following set of related questions: I. Your friend’s twin sister has skin cancer. Since you took Bio 97, your friend asks you if she will get skin cancer too. You consider that her grandfather had colon cancer but that no one else in the family has cancer. You tell her: II.

Would you expect to find the same deletion on chromosome 4 in a cell taken from the sister’s normal skin? III. Your friend discovers that she and her twin sister were adopted and that many relatives in her biological family have developed similar skin cancers (going back several generations and including other newly discovered siblings).
