Light: Electromagnetic Radiation
Variable wavelength (distance between 2 peaks)
Typically measured in nanometers (10 -9 m)
Wavelength and energy inversely related

The gene of interest has been isolated and amplified and a plasmid has
We must now create DNA fragments so that the gene of interest can
be inserted into the plasmid.

DNA Replication - Overview
How does the body prevent gene loss?
Genes NOT present at ends (non-coding DNA)
(Therefore, do NOT code for proteins)
Non-coding DNA is repeating nucleotide sequence at
