Summary and Response
A Decade Later, Genetic Map Yields Few New Cures
Summary: On June 26, 2000, the first draft of the human genome was completed. The
Human Genome Project, which was started in 1989, is a research project with the goals of
Evolution Electrophoresis Lab Report
Hypothesis: I predict that the cow and horse are evolutionarily related, and that the goat
and sheep are genetically linked. I also think that the horse branched off of the cow, and the goat
from the sheep.
I. THEORETICAL ASPECTS OF ELECTROPHORESIS
Electrophoresis is the movement of charged molecules under the influence of an
electric field. Because amino acids and protein are charged molecules, they migrate in an
electric field at approp
Dry Bean lab
Introduction: In groups of up to 4 students, you will work with 4 different types of beans. Each person should
be responsible for collecting the data for one type of bean. Data will be shared among the group after all of the
individual data h
1. For each type of food molecule, identify the enzyme(s) involved in its chemical digestion, the
place where the enzyme or secretion is made, where it is used and the end products of it's
Name of Enzyme/secretion
C1. Why was it important to rinse off the tubes before placing them in the beakers?
It is important to rinse the tubes because drops of solutions may still be present on the surface
of the cellophane
