The point lies on the curve . (a) If is the point , use your calculator to find the slope of the secant line (correct to six decimal places) for the following values of : (i) 0.5 (ii) 0.9 (iii) 0.99 (iv) 0.999 (v) 1.5 (vi) 1.1 (vii) 1.01 (viii) 1.001 (b) Using the results of part (a), guess the value of the slope of the tangent line to the curve at . (c) Using the slope from part (b), find an equation of the tangent line to the curve at

4/5/2016 Bio 119 – Genomics and Bioinformatics Lecture 3 – Week 2 Genome size in bacteria and archaea there is a rough relationship between gene size, gene content, and genome complexity (free-living vs. is it obligate, etc.) In eukaryotes the range in genome size can be very extreme Smaller – metazoan mitochondrion genome or a plant chloroplast genome o Animal mitochondria genome are very streamlined smaller o Chloroplast genomes have a size range but they do allow for flexibility Eukaryotic genomes o often consist of repetitive sequences o Can vary by many orders of magnitude o Organized into chromosomes (
