February 8, 2016 G. Pedigree 1. Symbols 2. Rules 3. Examples H. Probability - - Other Applications 1. Independent Events 2. Sequence of Events 3. Probability Formula IV. Chromosomes A. Prokaryote vs Eukaryote Probability = n! (p)^s (q)^t s! t! Exam 1 - Friday Will not cover Chi square analysis for Exam 1 20 multiple choice 15 points written response The product rule the probability that both/all of two or more events will occur is the product of the individual probabilities In case where the order is set or not relevant: multiply the individual probabilities 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2 = 1/16 Probability = n! (p)^s (q)^t The number of ways the defined combination of events s! t! can occur Event Probability Number of times A (normal) p s B (affected) q t total = n ! means take that number (ex. 3) 3 x 2 x 1 or 8 is 8 x 7 x 6 x 5 x 4 x 3 x 2 x 1 6 child family of equal boys and girls Event Probability Number of times A (girl) 1/2 s = 3 B (boy) 1/2 t = 3 total = n = 6 6 x 5 x 4 x 3! (1/2)^3 (1/2)^3 (3 x 2 x 1) is 6 so they cancel (3 x 2 x 1) (3!) 3! both cancel 5 x 4 (1/2)^3 (1/2)^3 = 20(1/2)^6 1 Pascal’s Triangle h = 1 1 (p +q)^1 1 2 1 n = 2 (p + q)^2 1p + 1q 1p^2 + 2pq + 1q^2 February 10, 2016 IV. Chromosomes A. Prokaryote vs Eukaryote B. Statistical Testing Example: linage vs independent assortment 1. Null Hypothesis 2. Chi square Prokaryote - before nucleus very simple cells that require minimum to complete tasks Ex. Bacterial cell, blue-green algae 1. Generally haploid 2. Single “chromosome” or linkage group 3. Linkage group often circular 4. DNA relatively free of protein 5. Coding capacity: example E. Coli about 4.2 x 10^6 bp (base pairs) 6. Lack of membrane means transcription of mRNA can still be in progress when translation into protein begins Genome in bacteria much more efficient than eukaryote no membrane, no golgi Eukaryote Endoplasmic Reticulum Golgi Double membrane keeps DNA from ribosomes 1. DNA is in the form of a nucleoprotein 2. Each chromosome contains a single linear DNA molecule the “unineme” model — • — • — • 3. Coding capacity: example • • • • • • • • • Humans about 3 x 10^9 bp 4. Nuclear membrane separates DNA transcription from translation - separates from making mRNA to using mRNA - don’t use immediately like prokaryotes Nucleolar Organizer where al ribosomal RNA has been stored Not coding - telomeres (at the end of each chromosome) No known function Single copy sequences pseudogenes = “false” - untranscribed gene “ghost” Multiple copy sequences repealed centromeric DNA sequences transposable elements, like LINES and SINES transposable elements - “jumping genes” LINES - long interspersed elements 1-5 kb human 20,000 - 40,000 copies in genome SINES - short interspersed elements about 10% microsattelites February 12, 2016 Exam 1

Why people love StudySoup

Steve Martinelli UC Los Angeles

"There's no way I would have passed my Organic Chemistry class this semester without the notes and study guides I got from StudySoup."

Jennifer McGill UCSF Med School

"Selling my MCAT study guides and notes has been a great source of side revenue while I'm in school. Some months I'm making over $500! Plus, it makes me happy knowing that I'm helping future med students with their MCAT."

Jim McGreen Ohio University

"Knowing I can count on the Elite Notetaker in my class allows me to focus on what the professor is saying instead of just scribbling notes the whole time and falling behind."

Parker Thompson 500 Startups

"It's a great way for students to improve their educational experience and it seemed like a product that everybody wants, so all the people participating are winning."
