Lab 8---  We will be studying a polygenic/quantitative human trait related to fingerprints.

Lab 9---Molecular genetics--Bacterial transformation  After overnight incubation please use this handout to observe your plates.  

Lab 10--Polymerase Chain Reaction--determining your PV92 genotype

Lab 10 part 2---analysis of PCR products.  It is essential that you are prepared for this lab.  Read your lab handout from Lab 10- Part 1 to refresh your memory of PCR and to begin to understand the dimorphic nature of the PV92 locus.  PV92 has 2 alleles. Predict  your genotype.  Review animation on electrophoresis.
