Post Lab 3
Polytene chromosomes are huge chromosomes that start as regular chromosomes but
become oversized through repeated series of DNA replication without cell division. These Cells
exist in the Drosophila salivary gland
Post Lab Plasmid Challenge II Transformation
Our results showed that only the LB/AMP/Ara and +pGLO was able to show glow under
the fluorescent light. pGLO plasmids holds one gene that is responsible for
Lab 2: DNA Isolation
For both methods of DNA extraction, we need to properly prepare samples to work with. In this
lab we used .5 grams of a berry, and placed it into a small porcelain bowl. We added 5ml of
