Unformatted text preview: 6) You are working with a copper resistance gene chromosomal gene locus in E. coli . After repeated streak isolation of the strain you resequenced the copper resistance gene and noticed that the gene was reversed with respect to the promoter. Do you expect this mutant to be resistant or sensitive to copper? Why? What kind of mutation is this? 7) You are studying mutation rates of the antibiotic rifampicin in E. coli . You carried out the fluctuation test and here are the results. The final cell amount in each culture was about 10 8 . Calculate the mutation rate for rifampicin. Culture # Rifampicin Resistant colonies/plate 1 1 2 5 3 4 20 5 6 50 7 8 9 10 100...
