Question

Topic: DNA Electrophoresis


[15] Below, align the newly determined DNA sequence with the

sequences of the three known plant species (see data under the Activity Form tab).

Next, compute the percent alignment of the bases for the three comparisons.

 

Show the alignment and percent alignment calculation for Plant 1. Highlight the Plant 1 differences in yellow.

 

Plant 1 -        T C A G C G T G A C T A A C T G

Alignment -


Percent Alignment =

 

Show the alignment and percent alignment calculation for Plant 2. Highlight the Plant 2 differences in yellow.

 

Plant 2 - T C A T C G T C G C T A A C G T

Alignment -


Percent Alignment =

 

Show the alignment and percent alignment calculation for Plant 3. Highlight the Plant 3 differences in yellow.

 

Plant 3 - T G A T C G A C G C T A A C G A

Alignment -


Percent Alignment =

 

Which known species has a genotype that is most similar to that of the unknown plant?

 

[16] A biologist at World University used Procedure IV to conduct an additional study and found the sequence following below.

 

Using your knowledge of central dogma generate the amino acid sequence that results from this sequence.

 

Given DNA template sequence: CAC GAC GGA TTC GTA

mRNA:

 

Amino Acids:
