Lab 8---Drosophila part II and Introduction to recombination mapping Part I and Part II.

Lab 9---Bacterial transformation---"seeing" the genetic material.

Lab 10 Transformation data and  discussion questions  AND Drosophila Part III 

Lab 11--Polymerase Chain Reaction--determining your PV92 genotype   PCR LECTURE

Lab 11 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.
