- Volume: quantitate.

- Final color: qualitative

2. - Accuracy is the nearness of the measurement.

- Precision is the degree to which several measurements have answers close to each other/scatter of the measurements

3. We were both. Proper colors and volume amounts were reached

3i. What is a nucleotide? A nucleotide is the building blocks of nucleic acids that carry packets of energy within the cell.

3ii. What is polymorphism? It is the fusion of multiple phenotypes which results from the evolutionary process.

4i.What species is this variation found in?

Homo sapiens.

4ii. What chromosome is the variation located on? The variation is located on chromosome 21:34370656

4iii. What is listed as the Clinical significance of this SNP? The clinical significance is listed as Pathogenic.

4iv. Which gene(s) is this SNP associated with? Is associated with the gene KCNE2.

4v. What disease is linked to this SNP? Long QT syndrome is associated with this particular SNP.

6i. What does KCNE2 stand for? KCNE2 (potassium voltage-gated channel, Isk-related family, member 2) is a protein-coding gene.

6ii. Briefly describe the molecular function of this gene? The KCNE2 gene provides instructions for making a protein that regulates the activity of potassium channels.

7i. What is an allele? alleles are various traits that are located on the same chromosome.

7ii.The disease-associated allele contains what sequence? Down syndrome is an example of allele related disease located on the 21 chromosome
