mutation deleting fragment where probe attaches

Post by SamiVG » Sat Apr 23, 2011 3:57 am

Hi in theory ( I have an homework question on this) if you have a mutant in which the part of the DNA where the probe attaches to is deleted.. will the probe detect anything?
Thanks

You seem to suspect the right answer. No DNA, no attachment

Cis or trans? That's what matters.
