You order a PCR primer from Eurofins Genomics. They deliver a tube with 35 nmoles of DNA
in it. How much TE buffer do you need to turn it into a 100 µM freezer stock? Which pipettor

Recombinase is a protein that finds adjacent pieces of DNA that have nearly identical DNA sequences, facilitates a backbone break in each piece of DNA near the identical sequence, physically rearranges the pieces of DNA, and then facilitates backbone repair. How does recombinase know when it’s found the right combination of DNA?
Huntington’s disease is caused by an allele at the IT15 gene. The allele produces RNA leading to
a protein that has a novel impact on how it interacts with other proteins, causing

What is the advantage of altering the protein that is made, instead of just stopping protein production?
Why is it important for gene regulation to be reversible in a cell?
