Dr. Stuart Reichler’s Fall 2007 Bio 325-UEX Homework #4
This assignment is due Tuesday 4 Dec. 2007 at the beginning of class

Describe four (4) genes.  For each gene include the following information:  the name of the gene; what organism(s) it can be found in; what is the normal function of the gene product, where is it normally expressed, and what happens when it does not function correctly.  Be certain to cite any sources that you use.  (You may not use genes we have discussed in class such as telomerase, helicase, hemoglobin, cyclin, cdk, DNA or RNA polymerase, etc.)

Be certain to cite any outside sources that you use.  Using outside sources is fine, but not citing those sources is plagiarism.  This assignment should not exceed three pages.  (A reference page does not count towards the three page limit.)  This homework will be graded on a scale of 0-4 points.  Your overall homework score cannot exceed 12 points.  If you received a "4" on homework 1-3, then  you have all 12 points, and you do not need to do this assignment.  The highest 3 homework scores will be used to tabulate your total score.

This typed/word-processed paper should be printed and turned in during class on December 4, 2007
I will subtract 0.5 points for each day late.
    If you have any questions, please ask.
