BIMM100 Fall 2008 Problem Set 2 1. You and your friend are having an argument about duplicated genes and tandemly repeated genes. He foolishly believes that they are the same thing, while you know that those are two different types of DNA. a. List two areas where duplicated and tandemly repeated genes differ. b. How do duplicated genes arise? (explain with a diagram) 2. Your project in lab requires you to introduce a plasmid containing the uracil gene into yeast that are ura- (mutated for the gene required to synthesize uracil). For parts a and b, assume your plasmid is fully functional. a. Without the plasmid, will these yeast grow on media without uracil? (yes or no) b. Following addition of the plasmid, you add 1ml of cells to a plate containing media with uracil and 1ml of cells to a plate containing media without uracil. After allowing time for colonies to grow on the two plates, do you expect to see more/less growth on one plate (and if so, which plate) or equal growth on both plates? Explain.
