Sample text

Microarrays are being used clinically for mutational analysis of several human disease genes, for the identification of viral sequence variations, and for largescale analyses of transcripts. These techniques provide the foundation to expand from a focus on single genes to analyses at the scale of the genome. A variety of mass spectrometrybased techniques is emerging for high-throughput applications, such as sequencing, genotyping, and analyses of proteins and proteomes. Cloning of DNA Cloning refers to the isolation of a DNA fragment that can be propagated indefinitely.

Examples of mutations. The coding strand is shown with the encoded amino acid sequence in the one-letter code and the three-letter code. 2). The GH gene is a member of a large gene cluster that includes a growth hormone variant gene as well as several structurally related chorionic somatomammotrophin genes and pseudogenes, which are highly homologous but functionally inactive relatives of a normal gene. Because such gene clusters contain multiple homologous DNA sequences arranged along the same chromosome, they are particularly prone to undergo recombination and, consequently, gene duplication or deletion.

This generates extension products of variable length. The four dideoxynucleotides can be distinguished by using different fluorophores, and the sequence can be deciphered after gel or capillary electrophoresis. The computer generates a chromatogram for easy visualization of the sequence. Upper right: Digestion of DNA with restriction endonucleases. Restriction enzymes recognize specific sequences, usually palindromes of 4–6 bp. Cleavage of DNA with a particular enzyme digests the DNA into a characteristic collection of fragments.
