Complete Name: Unit 4 Student Name: Beard, Matthew ********************************************************************************************************** 1. Describe Mendel's P, F1, and F2 generations in his experiments with pea plants. Student Answer: Mendel was a pioneer botanist, and some of his earlier works involved the study of the seed shape and traits. One of the first (Peter Daempfle, 2001) seed plants that Mendel dealt with was pea plants that he first noticed were always round or wrinkled, and they never portrayed any other trait other than that. He took the initiative to experiment with them, and the first experiment involved color where he crosses pollinated the purple with the white flowered parent plants. The results…show more content…
This is because, during the DNA (Peter Daempfle, 2001) replication in a cell, each of the couple of DNA strands serves as a template to be used in the formation of a new strand this is due to the condition where the both of each daughter of a dividing cell usually inherits a new DNA double helix that contains an old and a new strand. The Punnett square can also be used in this situation in order to determine the new colors of the DNA strands for the new double helixes.Peter Daempfle (2001). `Essential Biology An applied approach` Kendall hunt publishing Company Correct Answer: n/a ********************************************************************************************************** 7. Transcribe and translate the following sequence of DNA: TTAACGCCA. There is a mutation that resulted in AAA being inserted after G. Predict how this mutation would impact the product of translation. Student Answer: We can use the following analogy to translate the DNA to mRNA.DNA (Peter Daempfle, 2001) matches with mRNA in:A matches with UT matches with AG matches with CC matches with G Using this method, we can translate the above DNA: DNA: TTAACGCCA When it is translated, it comes to:mRNA: AAUUGCGGU.Peter Daempfle (2001). `Essential Biology An applied approach` Kendall hunt publishing…show more content…
UTTCTTT c. AAAAAA d. CCCCC Student Answer: . ATTGCCb. UTTCTTTc. AAAAAAd. CCCCC We can use the following analogy to (Peter Daempfle, 2001) translate the DNA to mRNA. We can also use this analogy to determine from the mentioned sequences which is not a correct translation of the mRNA.DNA matches with mRNA in:A matches with UT matches with AG matches with CC matches with G The odd one out from the sequence is clearly (b) that is UTTCTTT this is because the code T is from a DNA sequence rather than from a mRNA sequence.Peter Daempfle (2001). `Essential Biology An applied approach` Kendall hunt publishing Company Correct Answer: n/a ********************************************************************************************************** 9. Some antibiotics are used to kill bacteria by stopping the ribosome from functioning. Based on the central dogma of biology, why is this deadly for
