I'd just like to know: 1) are ancestry dna tests(mtDNA,Y-chromosome STR test) reliable? 2) in the case of Y-chromosome test,as long as they analyse markers on the Y chromosome,does it give ancestry only on the father of my father of my father.... or on the whole of my father's side(and his father,mother,etc.) If it gives ances
Eukaryotic genes differ than prokaryotic genes. Please explain, in depth, the post-transcriptional modification that a eukaryotic mRNA goes through before it leaves the nucleus and how this differs from the transcriptional events in a prokaryotic system.
Would it be possible to investigate possible homology between the Y chromosome on an animal (eg; platypus) and the Y chromosome on a human - using FISH (fluorescent in situ hybridization)?
Roughly how long would it take to 'map' a 'Y' chromosome:days, weeks, months? Using FISH, human and animal X chromosomes have been compared. To look for homology, could this comparison also be done using Y chromosomes?
I have analysed some fish proteins using SDS-PAGE. My results varied but some showed a similar banding pattern between samples. My question is what does two similar banding patterns suggest?
I have used a polyacrylamide gel in a protein analysis of fish samples. My question is why is this used instead of an agarose gel. and what is the purpose of the two reagents ammonium persulphate and TEMED when used to make polyacrylamid gels? Hope you can help.
What is the impact of chromosomal aberration during Meiosis II, when the normal gametes generated as an end product of Meiosis II are compared with those produced from Meiosis II with chromosomal aberrations? What would happen when an abnormal gamete is crossed with a normal gamete produced from the end product of MeiosisII?
If DNA and a base were inserted at the beginning of the 5' end of the molecule, how would that affect protein synthesis and the resultant protein?

Two strands of a DNA molecule are radio-labeled such that each strand can be uniquely identified. After three bouts of replication, how many new molecules of DNA are formed? How many strands of DNA are radio-labeled? Are both radio-labeled strands in the same DNA molecule? Why or why not?
I am having a hard time understanding the Alternative Splicing that takes place in C. elegans. Can you help? I have read articles on the internet but they don't make sense to me so I was wondering if you can make associations along the way so I can understand. Thanks

A strain of Aspergillus was subjected to mutagenesis by X rays, and two tryptophan-requiring mutants ( A and B) were isolated. These tryptophan-requiring strains were plated in large numbers to obtain revertants to wild type. You failed to recover any revertants from mutants A and recovered one revertant from mutant B. This r

In fruit flies, black body (b) is recessive to gray body (b+), purple eyes (pr) is recessive to red eyes (pr+), and vestigial wings (vg) are recessive to normal wings (vg+). The loci coding for these traits are linked, with the following map distances: b____5_____pr_______5_______vg The interference among these gen

The restriction enzyme Scs1 cuts at a restriction site that is found only very rarely in dog genomes. One dog, Jimmy, has two restriction sites for this restriction enzyme in his genome. Another dog, Billy, has three restriction sites for this enzyme in his genome. For this problem assume there is only one chromosome in dogs.
