incorrectly using paired t-test for comparing pulse rates?

I basically think that I am incorrectly using a t-test to compare some data I did in my physiology lab. No one else in my class has done a t-test so either the whole class is wrong or I am right General idea in the lab: 1. We measured the pulse rates at different times to see how it changed when we ...

tricky F1 cross with specific allele crossover

Ok at first to me this looks like the simple dihybrid cross which is easy to find the resulting f1 generation. All of the f1 will be heterozygotes but when I do the crossover in the problem during meiosis I the gametes that I get do not match the answers to the problem. I attached the file of me dra...

Ok I see what you did there. But when you divided the 4.5x10^7bp by the 30,000 proteins it would be 1500base pairs for 1 gene so that would mean 500amino acids for 1 gene right? 3base pairs or 3 nucleotides code for 1 amino acid. Thanks for the help too

can protein size be predicted given genome info?

Ok I am looking at old questions from my teacher and have come up with I believe to be misleading. I know obviously that eukaryotes generally have larger proteins due to many different reasons but based on the information given in this question I do not think you can accurately predict which protein...

thanks I didn't think about how large some of them were, that makes sense.

no repeat sequences in exons of genes?

Okay the other day in my genetics class we went over basically how there are alot of repeat sequences everywhere in the genome, even introns. Examples we talked about were microsatellites (dispersed everywhere which are short sequences), dna transposons such as SINES and LINES, alpha satellite repea...
