7. chemical signal A-2 The yeast genome is approximately 12,000 kb in length and contains about 6000 open reading frames
encoding an average of 500 amino acids. Using these
numbers, calculate the proportion of the yeast genome
that is protein-coding DNA.
A-3 Chromosome XII in yeast is about 2060–3060 kb in length depending on the number of the rDNA repeats
(100–200 copies of a 9 kb repeating unit). If you grow
up 10 individual yeast cells as clones in liquid culture,
how could you analyze each clone to...
