Problem: Please describe the process of DNA fingerprinting and explain how DNA fingerprinting can differentiate between possible suspects in a crime.
Basically and simply, in order to understand DNA fingerprinting (so you can watch and understand CSI better!) you need to understand something about "restriction enzymes." These are proteins that act as catalysts. Specifically, they catalyze the breaking of DNA molecules. But generally speaking, not randomly. In fact, most restriction enzymes recognize specific sequences of about 4-6 base pairs (an AG or a CT) in a DNA ...
The following posting helps with a genetics problem. This solution helps describe the process of DNA fingerprinting and explains how DNA fingerprinting could differentiate between possible suspects of a crime. The explanation is given in 406 words.
