Discovery of DNA Polymerase
by I. R. Lehman
This review is a personal account by one of the discoverers of DNA polymerase I. It is a
nice illustration of how teamwork and incremental advances can occasionally lead to
DNA Replication is a Common Drug Target
A number of therapeutic drugs used to treat cancers and viral infections act by inhibiting
DNA replication. The goal of this task is to familiarize you with how one of these drugs
work. Drugs that target DNA replica

result for the following three bases: A, U, C.
2) Explain how either a) Southern Blotting or b) FISH could be used to
detect the BCR-ABL gene fusion associated with chr

E. Coli, have rare codons
not all tRNAs are expressed equally. you have 64 codons, not all are expressed
61 different codons that code for amino acids. RIPL have codons that are expressed in really low concentration in E. Coli cells
