Mutations & DNA Tech

Genetic modification of a bacterium by incorporation of free DNA from another ruptured bacterial cell Transformation
A point mutation that does not result in a change in the amino acid sequence. Silent mutation
A type of mutation in which a nucleotide (base) is replaced by another nucleotide. point mutation
A type of mutation in which a nucleotide (base) is added to a sequence of DNA. insertion
A type of mutation in which a nucleotide (base) is removed from a sequence of DNA. deletion
What were the two goals of the Human Genome Project? To determine how many genes humans have, & to determine what each of those genes codes for.
Using DNA Technologies or enforcing breeding (mating) restrictions to create a perfect organism or a perfect population. Eugenics
Method for rapidly producing identical copies of genes in a lab setting. Polymerase Chain Reaction
DNA Technology that deliberately alters the DNA of an organism. Genetic Engineering
When making recombinant DNA, these enzymes are involved in cutting DNA molecules at specific base sequences, revealing sticky ends. restriction enzymes
When making recombinant DNA, this enzyme forms bonds between the sticky ends. DNA Ligase
Artificial DNA formed by combining segments of DNA from two different organisms. Recombinant DNA
Patterns of DNA bands/segments that are unique to each individual. DNA fingerprints

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
