Analysis Assignment 1


1.  Prepare a properly labeled figure showing your DNA gel.  Be sure the figure shows your names, a title and is properly labeled in all respects.  Include a caption that indicates the contents of each lane. 





2.  Write a paragraph to accompany the above graphic interpreting the results (not restating the procedure!)  Remember, all we can really do is compare the lanes that are present and speculate what our observations mean.  Possible questions to address are:  Did your results confirm the experimental design?  Did we isolate the correct plasmid?  What was your reasoning to conclude this?  Was the plasmid modified as expected?  Was there sufficient resolution on the agarose gel to make a complete analysis?  How could this resolution be improved?  Other?





3.  Turn in your analysis by Friday at 5:00.
