Is complexity inevitable?

... a very good way of increasing that complexity. If a pair of organisms are in this kind of symbiotic relationship it makes it harder for them to hybridize with other organisms, thus preserving the complexity of the environment. A stable environment throughout its life produces more and more of ...

How to draw a blot from a RFLP physical map?

... thick horizontal line (at top). You cut DNA from different individuals with EcoRI, separate fragments by electrophoresis, blot to a membrane, and hybridize the blot to a labeled probe. Draw a picture of what the blot will look like when the DNA comes from individuals homozygous for the following ...

cloning

... to clone big genes the way is amplify them with PCR from the whole DNA of the organism which carry it. First we design two oligonucleotides wich hybridize with the 5´and 3´ends and carry restriction endonucleases sites to introduce the gene in a subcloning plasmid and after production purification ...

Weird questions?

... within this piece of genomic DNA. The genes corresponding to these trasncripts were named P20 and P50. A probe complimentary to 5' end of P20 mRNA hybridized to 0.7kb fragment while the one complimentary to 3' end hybridzied to 0.3kb. Similarly, the probe complimentary to 5' of P50 mRNA hybridize ...
