Problem 13. You discover a new compound that yeast require for survival. To find genes involved in the synthesis of this compound (compound X) you have screened for mutants that cannot grow on minimal media, but can grown on minimal media + compound X. You find 10 mutants and perform a complementation tests. The results are shown below (+ = growth, - = no growth). 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 1 - + + - + + + + + + 2 - - + + + - + + + 3 - + + + - + + + 4 - + + + + + + 5 - - + + - + 6 - + + - + 7 - + + + 8 - + - 9 - + 10 - A) How many genes are in your mutant collection? B) Which mutations are in the same genes? You know that the earliest precursor for compound X is compound Y. There are 5 other compounds that could potentially be involved in the pathway (L, M, N, O, P). To

    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.
