Lab 7: Arabidopsis development/Bacterial transformation


1.             The plant we will work with in lab this week is called ________________________.

2.             Any change in the DNA sequence of an organism is called a ________________________.

3.             In the plant experiments, we will be working with a reporter gene called ________________________.

4.             When this gene is expressed it can cleave a substrate to produce the color ________________________.

5.             In order to see the color better, you will extract the green chlorophyll with ________________________.

6.             The part of a gene that controls where and when it is expressed (is on or off) is called the ________________________.

7.             A ________________________ is a protein that controls the expression of many other genes.

8.             Another name for a plant hair is ________________________.

9.                    "Transparent testa, glabra" means ________________________.

10.                 We will be extracting ________________________ pigment to measure its absorbance spectrum.

11.           A relatively small circular piece of DNA is called a ________________________.

12.           Often these small circular pieces of DNA encode for genes that confer resistance to ________________________.

13.           If another piece of DNA is spliced into one of these small circular pieces of DNA, it is said to be ________________________.

14.                 When one of these small circular pieces of DNA enters a bacterial cell, the cell is said to be ________________________.

15.           The bacterium we will use in lab this week is called ________________________.
