Lab 5 ---Varaiation in Drosophila/X-linked genes/Chromsome mapping

Lab 6--Human traits

Lab 7--gene pool/population genetics

Lab 8--Bacterial transformation "seeing the genetic material at work"  Transformation discussion--Here

Lab 9---Determinining your PV92 genotype---PCR and genetic polymorphisms.  PCR LECTURE

Lab 9 part 2---analysis of PCR products.  It is essential that you are prepared for this lab.  Read your lab handout from Lab 10- Part 1 to refresh your memory of PCR and to begin to understand the dimorphic nature of the PV92 locus.  PV92 has 2 alleles. Predict  your genotype.  Review animation on electrophoresis.
