13.What is the sequence of the DNA template strand from which this transcript was made? (It’s 5’—end would begin as…)A) 5’—GGC…—3’B) 5’—CAU…—3’C) 5’—CAT…—3’D) 5’—CCG…—3’E) 5’—GAT…—3’
14.Disregarding any Shine-Dalgarno sequence, find the protein-coding message in the mRNA above.How many amino acids are in the translated peptide.
15.Let us say that the above protein is bacterial andenyl cyclase (it is not, but just pretend), and let ussay that a mutation arises in this gene such that it cannot bind ATP. With reference to the lac operon,would this cell display beta-galactosidase activity in the presence of glucose and no lactose if it’s lacoperon genotype were: IsOcZ+. Consider both positive and negative control, and assume that allcomponents must be in place for gene expression to happen efficiently (i.e., an all-or-nothingresponse).
16.Answer question 16 above but this time ignore the role of positive control. In other words, withreference to the lac operon, would this cell display beta-galactosidase activity in the absence of lactoseif it’s lac operon genotype were: IsOcZ+.
=================================================================(E) POPULATION & QUANTITATIVE GENETICS----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------17.In a large herd of 5,468 sheep, 76 animals have yellowish wool, and the rest of the herd has whitewool. Yellow wool is inherited as a recessive trait. Assume the herd is in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium.What is the frequency of the yellow allele (q)?A) 0<q< 0.2B) 0.2 <q< 0.4C) 0.4 <q< 0.6D) 0.6 <q< 0.8E) 0.8 <q<1.0
18.A study of quantitative variation for abdominal bristle number in Drosophila yielded estimates ofVP= 6.08,VG= 3.17, andVE= 2.91. Assuming the interactions between genetics and environment canbe ignored, what is the broad-sense heritability?
19.A fish breeder notes that wild sardines have a mean body length of 18 cm (six-week-oldfingerlings). He has a stock of domesticated sardines that are especially tasty, but they have a meanlength of only 10 cm at 16 weeks. He wishes to increase the rate of growth in his stock by selecting forincreased length at six weeks after hatching. He selects large adult fish from his domesticated stock,and this pool of breeders at 16-weeks has a mean length of 15 cm. He breeds this group to produce anew generation of fingerlings, and these progeny have a mean length of 12.5 cm at 16 weeks. Theadults in his stock that were not allowed to breed had a mean length of 7.2 cm. Estimate the narrow-sense heritability of fingerling length at six weeks of age given these data.
