1. What is different about initiation of transcription in E.coli (bacteria) and yeast
In eukaryotic organisms, the RNA polymerases cant bind directly to
DNA and have to use general transcription factors. The general

Part 1: Mendelian Problems
Practice these problems to hone your skills at inheritance patterns. They are set up as
multiple-choice to give you some possible answers as guidelines. Your SI will be most

Notes & Answers to Questions:
Purple phenotype is recessive to the wild type and it is not sex linked, as there are no significant
differences between the male and female offspring in the F1 or F2. These data w

Inhibition of GATA-4 in the Differentiation of p19
Embryonic Stem Cells into Cardiomycocytes
Alexis Weston, Margaux Pugh, Nick Cramer, Somi Yoo
Stem cell research is an increasingly important subject in medical research and genetics.
1. Define the relationship between DNA Damage, DNA Repair, and Mutation.
There are a variety of DNA repair processes that are used when DNA is
damaged or mutated. DNA damage is brought on by both environmental
and metabolic factors.
Inhibition of GATA-4 During the Differentiation of p19 Embryonic Stem Cells into
The potential benefits of stem cell research could provide major breakthroughs
throughout the world of science. However, before these st
