25. In the beetle species Trox dohrnithe Hox genes are found right next to each other in the genome. This is characteristic is called _____________________. 26. Why are animal Hox genes found right next to each other in the genome? 27. What would you expect if you examined the syntenyof closely related types of E. colibacteria? a.Certain codons are used at elevated frequencies, especially in highly expressed genes b.Genes in one type would be found largely in the same order in the genome as the genes from the other type c.All codons are used at frequencies that are correlated with their level of degeneracy d.There would be very little or no correlation between the order of genes in the genome of one type with the order of genes in the genome of the other type 28. Plants don’t have Hox genes, but they have other homeotic genes that control the patterning of different morphological regions. a. True b. False Match the Evolutionary Developmental tool on the left with its description on the right. 29. Ablation/transplantation b 30. Gene visualization a 31. Gene knockout c 32. Transgenic expression d

    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.
