Help: Confused with primers in a PCR of a vector?

... I'm not entirely familiar with what is going on. We recently ligated a gene into a pBS vector and popped it into some E. coli cells. We looked for ... off is just where these primers will bind to, and what the subsequent product will be. The one that really throws me off is number 2, because it ...

Do chromosomses ever get competitive?

... there could be a pathway between the dominant and recessive protein products. I will speculate about how such a pathway might arise. Suppose ... not genotypes, the heterozygous genotype persists. Then, in comes a new gene from somewhere else in the genome. It produces protein product "C". ...

Gene deletion

... for some amino acid or vitamine or something. And you use the missing gene instead of antibiotic resistance gene, so that your transformants are ... one). However, if they added 5-fluoro-uracil, it produced some toxic product and thus only fungi lacking the selection gene survived.

Re:

... I think one of the reasons for dominance in traits is that d dominant gene tends to inhibit the expression of the recessive gene either directly ... the recessive allele is still coding for an under-performing protein product. But since the protein's job is to serve as an inhibitor (perhaps ...
