The son of a man who does not have Huntington's develops Huntington's after age 50. His son develops Huntington's in his late thirties. Explain (1) three ways someone can manifest an autosomal dominant phenotype when his father didn't have it, and (2) why this man's own offspring would show symptoms so much earlier than his
This solution provides a map of a typical Ti-based plasmid from agrobacterium tumefaciens, explains the various elements present and why they are needed to transfect a gene into plant cells.
Early research established that the full naturally occurring Bt protoxin is a protein containing 1156 amino acids (later work has shown that insecticidal activity results from a much shorter amino acid sequence). The Bt protoxin gene was introduced into plant cells using a vector based on the Ti plasmid of Agrobacterium tume
Discuss why the Hardy-Weinberg laws are important in biology. Be sure to give specific examples to support your answer.
For many of the mammalian Hox genes, it has been possible to determine that some of them are more similar to one of the insect HOM-C genes than to the others. Describe an experimental approach using the tools of molecular biology that would allow such a determination.

Explain how one media can identify both the selective and differential nature of the organism. Each one identifies different properties of the organism growing on the agar.
Analyze the relationship between genetics and learning. Thank you so much for your help!
A brief overview of the debate surrounding genetic food modification, the process by which transgenic organisms are created. How is this process similar to the more traditional selective breeding and how is it different? What are the potential benefits of genetic modification of food? What are the concerns of those opposed to
6) Mutational changes were introduced in a single codon in the gene of T4 phage. The following amino acid substitutions were observed. By following the base changes in the codons determine the codon for each mutant. Assume each amino acid substitution resulted from a single base substitution. Codons for several amino acids are p
1. A child wonders if she is adopted and hence compares her blood type to those of her parents. Her father is type AB and her mother is type O. What blood type of the child would indicate that she might have been adopted? 2. Color blindness is a sex linked recessive trait in humans. The only member of Judy's family who is
1) The genes GHI are on a single chromosome in the following order: ---G--------H-------------------------------------- I ------------------ 5 mu 15 mu The distance between G and H is 5 mu and the distance between genes H an I is 15 mu. What are the numbers of various progeny (assume a total of 4
Conclusions related to sickle cell anemia based on a gel eltrophoresis sample image.
I have a question from class where we have to write out the genotype of the triply heterozygous mother (given the frequency of the progeny). What I'm having trouble understanding is, how can it be determined what order to write the alleles in if the chromosome number isn't given or if it doesn't state if its sex-linked? Is the
Consider the following two genotypes: AABB , aabb where A and B are dominant and a and b are recessive: 1) What is the genotype of the F1 progeny from an AABB x aabb cross? 2) Construct a Punnet square of the F1 self cross (i.e. F1 x F1). What are the genotypic ratios from this testcross? What are the phenotypic ratios?
If you isolated a cDNA coding of an unknown gene transcription factor, determine how you could perform the following: (i) isolation of genomic gene encoding for the cDNA and the characterization of the structure, (ii) the chromosomal location of the gene, (iii) and identity of the genes within a cell whose expression is potentially regulated by this transcription factor.

A farmer breeds a champion bull with a good quality cow of the same breed. Discuss why the offspring from the champion bull may not necessarily have the attributes to become champions themselves. Include simple diagrams and describe how the characters resulting in a favourable phenotype arise and the importance of combinations
Please help with the following problem. If the frequency of the dominant phenotypes (AA + Aa) is 0.8 and the population is in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium, can you calculate the allele frequencies? Can you calculate the genotype frequencies? Show your calculations.
1. Two mothers give birth to sons at the same time in a busy urban hospital. The son of couple #1 is afflicted with hemophilia A. Neither parent has the disease. Couple #2 has a normal son despite the fact that the father has hemophilia A. The two couples sue the hospital in court claiming that a careless doctor swapped their b
Understanding Inheritance and probability If we perform a F1 cross of the corn we can predict the probabilities of obtaining a particular outcome. For example, we can ask; what is the probability of getting a purple smooth corn seed from a dihybrid F1 cross of PpSs?

This abstract uses the example of flower color to illustrate how the Hardy-Weinberg equation can be used to calculate the frequency of a given allele within a population.
4. In the Yucca plant, flower color is determined by a system of incomplete dominance. The genotype BB gives blue flowers, Bb gives lilac flowers, and bb gives white flowers. In a population of yucca plants, 8 had blue flowers, 84 had lilac flowers, and 52 had white flowers. a. What is the frequency of the B allele in this
