Suppose a segment of DNA contains five restriction sites for a particular restriction enzyme. How many fragments of DNA will remain after the enzyme is used to cut the DNA
Some restriction enzymes leave behind "sticky ends," or tails of
What do the bands on a restriction map show?
sizes of DNA fragments
Which of the following statements about polymerase chain reaction is true?
requires primers and nucleotides
The first step of PCR is to heat a DNA molecule to more than 90 degrees C. what is the function of this step?
to separate the DNA strands
The main role of primers during PCR process is to
provide a starting point for DNA synthesis
During each PCR cycle what happens to the number of copies of a DNA segment
Scientists use PCR primarily to
Which phrase is true for a DNA fingerprint
It is a type of restriction map
Which of the following is the basis for the molecular differences identified by DNA fingerprinting?
regions of noncoding DNA
DNA fingerprinting can be used to
prove a family relationship
Which of the following are examples of clones?
identical twin sisters
DNA that contains genes from more than one organism is called
Which statement is true of all genetically engineered organisms?
They have altered genomes
Plant that contain recombinant DNA are called
The two main goals of the Human Genome Project are to sequence all of the DNA base pairs of the human chromosomes and to
identify all of the genes within the genome
Gene sequencing defines the order of
DNA nucleotides in genes or genomes
The study of the proteins that result from an organism's genome is called
The main purpose of genetic screening is to
assess the risk of having or carrying a genetic disorder
The goal of gene therapy is to replace defective or missing genes in order to
treat some genetic disorder
Genetic engineering is possible because all organisms are based on the same
What is a clone
a genetically identical copy of a gene or organism
Which of the following technologies uses electricity to sort DNA fragments based on their sizes?
Which of the following processes could a scientist use to make an amount of DNA that is large enough to study?
polymerase chain reaction
The restriction enzymes used by scientists to cut DNA molecules at specific nucleotide sequences?
Which of the following experimental techniques involves treating a genetic disorder?
The purpose of genetic engineering is to
give organisms new traits
How does gel electrophoresis separate DNA fragments?
by according to size
What is one of the benefits of genetic engineering of plants?
enhanced disease resistance in crops
One approach to gene therapy is to remove some of a patient's bone marrow stem cells and "infect" them with a virus that contains a functional gene. The stem cells are put back into the patient's bone marrow, so that they can
divide and make more blood cells with the functional gene
During gel electrophoresis, DNA fragments always move from_____ pole to____pole.
