Lab 1- 2
By Sept 9: Complete entry assessment (2.5pts); Before the beginning of Lab 2: Submit preliminary cross results by the end of the third day after lab 1 (1 pt);Summarize Series 1 experimental question & experimental design; Diagram crosses using template provided; Explain data interpretation (9 pts). This assignment is described at: BISC219/F13: Assignment_1_Lab1
Read Background information on your Series 2 Forward Genetics Project at Forward Genetics Project Outline. Submit statement of Series 2 overall experimental question & goals. Write a CONCISE narrative summary of the investigation. Diagram the expected results (genotype and phenotype) for the crosses in the Linkage Testing work. Use only part (through Linkage 2) of the Project 2 cross template provided. (The Mapping part of the template will be completed later). Include a narrative description of the linkage testing experimental design and explain what you will look for in the results and why.
