DNA Fingerprinting

Concept #1: Genetic Markers

Concept #2: Gel Electrophoresis

Additional Problems
RFLPs result because individuals in a population havea. DNA sequence differences in the pattern of restriction sites.b. DNA sequence differences that create different proteins.c. DNA sequence differences that make DNA more susceptible to denaturation.d. different mutations that alter the length of their mRNA.e. different mutations that make their mRNA more susceptible to degradation
RFLPs are separated bya. the polymerase chain reaction.b. northern blotting.c. gel electrophoresis.d. western blotting.e. dideoxynucleotide sequencing.
RFLPs may arise through mutations.a. Trueb. False
RFLPs may be used as markers to identify people at risk of certain genetic disorders.a. Trueb. False
The process used to determine the order of bases in DNA is polymerase chain reaction.  a. True b. False
The goal of DNA fingerprinting is:A. to collect DNA samples from random individuals in a populationB. to diagnose diseaseC. to determine whether DNA samples collected from two different locations are from the same person
A gene probe that is generated by isolating mRNA and using the enzyme reverse transcriptase to produce a DNA copy is called a(n):A. mRNA probeB. cDNA probe.C. synthesized probeD. cloned probe
Please place the following steps of DNA fingerprinting by RFLP analysis in the correct sequence.Rank the options below:A. Fragmentation of the DNA using restriction enzymes that will cut the DNA at specific sites.B. Amplification of the DNA sample to be test via polymerase chain reaction (PCR).C. DNA gel electrophoresis to separate the bands by size.D. Comparison of the DNA bands of the samples collected from different locations to determine whether they are from the same person.
A _____ is a DNA molecule used in hybridization reactions to detect the presence of a particular gene in separated DNA fragments.A. plasmidB. vectorC. probeD. blot
