BIO 181 – Lesson 14 Lab Worksheets
Using an SNP to Predict Biter Taste Ability Part III
View the video called “Using a Single Nucleotide Polymorphism (SNP) to Predict Bitter
Taste Ability, Part II” and answer the following questions:
I.3. a. What does an E-value of 6e-12 mean?
b. Note the names of any significant alignments that have E-values less than 0.1. Do they make
sense? What do they have in common?
e. How long was the product that you amplified in the PCR reaction in lesson 12?
III.5. On what chromosome have you landed?
III.8. What genes are found on either side of TAS2R38? How do their structures differ from
III.8. What do most of these genes have in common with TAS2R38, and what can you conclude?
