Lab Report: Introduction Section
Objective: Review the background and significance of our laboratory
models (Halophiles) and our plan for research. Produce a wellreferenced short paper that summarizes 1) the background information
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
helpful at working through any that y
Unit 2. DNA Homework
1. Draw a schematic of a single DNA strand. Do not focus on the bases, but
instead on the chemistry of the ribose ring and phosphate linkages.
2. Why do you think the 3OH is significant in DNA structure?
3. What are the ethical implic
Unit 6. Regulation
1. The order of the structural genes in the lac operon is
Unit 4. Protein
1. What is different about initiation of transcription in E.coli (bacteria) and yeast
2. Why is eukaryotic RNA processed after transcription, but not in bacteria?
3. Why cant eukaryotes couple the processes of transcr
Unit 1. Chromosome
1. Y chromosome haplotypes and haplogroups are useful in population genetics in
humans and are a powerful tool in looking at origins of humans. Why is the Y
chromosome a better marker than another autosome?
2. Consider Metaphas
1. Define the relationship between DNA Damage, DNA Repair, and Mutation.
2. Replica-plating experiments show that the colony growth pattern is the same for
bacteria grown without antibiotics initially, then exposed to antibiotics on s

In this laboratory, you will explore the electrical activity of the brain. You will
record and analyze electroencephalograms (EEGs) from a volunteer; look at
interfering signals, and examine the ef
In these experiments, you will explore how muscles work and examine some of
the properties of muscle fatigue. You will electrically stimulate the nerves of the
