Series 2- To Taste Or Not To Taste

In this three week series of experiments you will learn:

  1. About SNPs and how they are analyzed.
  2. How to isolate DNA from bacterial cells.
  3. How to use PCR to amplify a region of the PTC gene which contains a SNP.
  4. How to use restriction enzymes and gel electrophoresis to identify the two most common PTC gene variants.
  5. How genotype and phenotype at the PTC locus correlate.
