Data analysis: DNA alignment HELP?

As genes encoding cyclin-dependent kinases had been cloned from Schizosaccharomyces pombe, the fission yeast, Saccharomyces cerevisae, the budding yeast, and human cells, investigators working in plant systems designed experiments to determine whether plants also possessed CDKs that functioned as th...

Why would the identical amino acids region of certain specie

Why would the identical amino acids region of certain species be used as a basis for a primer design?


I know they share homology and are very conserved but why is it used as a primer?

What does describe mean in this question?

Describe three substrates of mitotic Cyclin-Dependent Kinases (CDKs) associated with the reorganization of the nuclear membrane during mitosis. Explain how the phosphorylation of these proteins affects their function and cell progression through mitosis. I have found the three substrates but I don't...

I get it, I didn't count the gaps.

What do the dots in the diagram represent?

Bioinformatics - DNA sequencing

Take a look at the DNA alignment of two genes:

http://www.ebi.ac.uk/Tools/services/res ... 408-pg/aln


The Homo Sapien is the longest DNA sequence. If the Homo Sapien gene has 1770 bases surely the overall aligned length should also be 1770, so why is it 1899?

Also what exactly does the dots in the diagram represent?

Are alanine and valine small and hydrophobic?

Restriction enzyme - I think my teacher made a mistake.

The vector is a circular molecule containing a total of 5730 bp. It has sites for the restriction enzymes SstI, EcoRI and HindIII located at the following positions: EcoRI position 42 SstI position 218 HindIII positions 328 and 5518 An EcoRI/SstI fragment (1350 bp long), containing the chicken virus...

Sequence allignment questions

I really don't understand this question, can you help me?

d. Are there any other amino acids which are important for human adenovirus 1B function (had), but not for ns5 (chickxns5) ? If there are any, again indicate ALL these on your alignment and explain your reasoning.
