[edit] Answer the following Discovery Questions from Chapter 4
#Number 7 from pg 110: In 4.7b it looks as though up to hr 3 the genes of X, Y and Z were transcribed similarly, all having the ratios of 1.0. Beyond hour three a similarity is not seen between the three genes.  
    * Number 5 from p. 110: Choose two genes from Figure 4.6 (PDF of figures on MyLMUConnect) and draw a graph to represent the change in transcription over time.
    * Number 6b. from p. 110: Look at Figure 4.7, which depicts the loss of oxygen over time and the transcriptional response of three genes. These data are the ratios of transcription for genes X, Y, and Z during the depletion of oxygen. Using the color scale from Figure 4.6, determine the color for each ratio in Figure 4.7b.
    * Number 7 from p. 110: Were any of the genes in Figure 4.7b transcribed similarly?
    * Number 9 from p. 118: Why would most spots be yellow at the first time point?
    * Number 10 p. 118 Go to http://www.yeastgenome.org and search for the gene TEF4; you will see it is involved in translation. Look at the time point labeled OD 3.7 in Figure 4.12, and find the TEF4 spot. Over the course of this experiment, was TEF4 induced or repressed? Hypothesize why TEF4’s gene regulation was part of the cell’s response to a reduction in available glucose (i.e., the only available food).
    * Number 11 from p. 120: Why would TCA cycle genes be induced if the glucose supply is running out?
    * Number 12 from p. 120: What mechanism could the genome use to ensure genes for enzymes in a common pathway are induced or repressed simultaneously?
    * Number 13 from p. 121: Given rule one on page 109, what color would you see on a DNA chip when cells had their repressor gene TUP1 deleted?
    * Number 14 from p. 121: What color spots would you expect to see on the chip when the transcription factor Yap1p is overexpressed?
    * Number 15 from p. 121: Could the loss of a repressor or the overexpression of a transcription factor result in the repression of a particular gene?
    * Number 16 from p. 121: What types of control spots would you like to see in this type of experiment? How could you verify that you had truly deleted or overexpressed a particular gene?
[edit] Finding a Journal Club Article/Microarray Dataset
    * Next week you will begin the DNA Microarray Project by preparing for your next Journal Club presentation that will take place in Week 12. You will work in groups of 2 or 3 on this project. Groups are:
          o Chris, Nicki - Mycobacterium smegmatis
          o Isaiah, Sam
          o Alex, Bobby, Zeb - Staphylococcus aureus MRSA25
    * You may choose to work ahead towards this presentation by finding your Journal Club article and corresponding microarray dataset with which you will perform your project. Your task is to find a published microarray dataset that measures gene expression from one of the following species:
          o Saccharomyces cerevisiae (yeast)
          o Escherichia coli K12
          o Helicobacter pylori
          o Mycobacterium smegmatis
          o Mycobacterium tuberculosis
          o Plasmodium falciparum
          o Pseudomonas aerugenosa
          o Salmonella typhimurium
          o Staphylococcus aureus MRSA252
          o Vibrio cholerae
    * Microarray data is not centrally located on the web. Some major sources are:
          o NCBI GEO
          o EBI ArrayExpress
          o Stanford Microarray Database
          o PUMAdb (Princeton Microarray Database)
          o In addition, microarray data can sometimes be found as supplementary information with a journal article or on an investigator's own web site.  
    * All journal club articles/microarray datasets are subject to approval by the instructor.
[edit] Shared Journal Assignment
    * Store your journal entry in the shared BIOL368/F11:Class Journal Week 9 page. If this page does not exist yet, go ahead and create it.
    * Link to the shared journal entry from your user page; this should be part of your template.
    * Link the shared journal page to this assignment page.
    * Sign your portion of the journal with the standard wiki signature shortcut ([[User:Samantha M. Hurndon|Samantha M. Hurndon]] 19:11, 2 November 2011 (EDT)).
    * Add the "BIOL368/F11" category to the end of the wiki page (if someone has not already done so).
[edit] Reflection
After reading the Brown & Botstein (1999), Campbell & Heyer (2003), and DeRisi et al. (1997) readings, reflect on the following:
  1. What was the purpose of these readings?
  2. What did I learn from these readings?
  3. What did I not understand (yet) about the readings?

Mutation in V3 Region

  1. Subject 8 was sequenced and comparied to the V3 region on stanfeild's paper. The locations of the mutations were then mapped out using starbiochem.

Introduction to DNA Microarrays

  1. Number 5 from p. 110: File:Number 5 p110.xlsx
  2. Number 6.b from p 110:
    • Hour 1: X: Black Y: Black Z: Black
    • Hour 3: X: Dark red Y: Red (still dark but not as dark as X) Z: Blackish-red
    • Hour 5: X: Black Y: Black Z: Dark Red
    • Hour 9: X: Blackish Green Y: Green Z: Dark Red
  3. Number 7 from pg 110: In 4.7b it looks as though up to hr 3 the genes of X, Y and Z were transcribed similarly, all having the ratios of 1.0. Beyond hour three a similarity is not seen between the three genes.
