Genetic Ethics Quiz What would you do? A biotechnology company has spliced together genes Genetic Ethics Quiz What would you do? A biotechnology company has spliced together genes from two different species of fish to produce salmon that grow faster. This allows the fish to be ready for purchase more quickly, decreasing consumer costs and increasing the availability of salmon. Will you: GMO Salmon a) b) c) Wait in line for the first genetically modified salmon. It sounds super yummy! Wait for further research to analyze the potential environmental and health impacts of GMO salmon Boycott any store willing to sell the salmon. Don’t trust what isn’t natural!!

Pet cloning is now available at the local mall. You used to have a Pet cloning is now available at the local mall. You used to have a pet dog named Charlie, but he died two years ago. Now you learn that you can get a new Charlie by just bringing in a sample of his hair. What do you do? a) Find a strand of Charlie’s hair as soon as possible.

Your Dog has just Died and you want to save his cells for Cloning Your Dog has just Died and you want to save his cells for Cloning Important! Please read below and act now! If your dog has just passed then you must act quickly as in right now! There is a 5 day window to successfully extract good quality cells from your beloved friend before the cells begin to deteriorate. This means that once your dog has passed the body will begin to quickly deteriorate and your chances of extracting quality cells diminishes with every passing day. Warning!!! Do not place your dog in the Freezer. If you do there will be zero chance of cloning your dog. You must wrap your dogs entire body with wet bathing towels and place it in the Refridgerator to keep it cool. Do this first and then call us right away. Time is of the essence! http: //myfriendagain. com/

Cutting DNA! • Restriction Enzymes: – Enzymes that separate (“cut”) the DNA backbone (sugar-phosphate Cutting DNA! • Restriction Enzymes: – Enzymes that separate (“cut”) the DNA backbone (sugar-phosphate bond) between very specific DNA bases • Each RE has its own recognition sequence – Enable scientists to be very specific in the sequences they cut (specificity) – Uses: Disease diagnosis, DNA profiling, Transgenic organisms, etc.

Diagnosis of Disease: a mutation within a recognition sequence can be used to identify Diagnosis of Disease: a mutation within a recognition sequence can be used to identify the presence of a disordered allele

How do we see DNA? • DNA is colorless and tiny! • Gel electrophoresis How do we see DNA? • DNA is colorless and tiny! • Gel electrophoresis is a technique that uses electricity and a sponge-like substrate to separate DNA fragments by size – DNA is negatively charged…moves towards positive electrical pole – Large DNA fragments travel slower than small fragments

Steps to genetic marker analysis using Gel Electrophoresis: 1. DNA is extracted from cells Steps to genetic marker analysis using Gel Electrophoresis: 1. DNA is extracted from cells 2.

How are the DNA fragments different? ? • Humans are 99. 9% genetically identical! How are the DNA fragments different? ? • Humans are 99. 9% genetically identical! But…there areas of DNA that differ from person to person (Genetic Markers) – Genetic markers can be single base differences OR repeating sequences of DNA between active genes (i. e. CCGCCG) • Number of repeats for each locus varies from person to person = polymorphic

 • Restriction enzymes can cut DNA sequences that flank the repeat regions – • Restriction enzymes can cut DNA sequences that flank the repeat regions – When these regions are removed from the DNA, they differ in length from one person to the other • Restriction fragments = pieces of DNA after cutting with restriction enzymes = GENETIC MARKERS

Pretend that these numbers represent homologous chromosomes from two parents…what are the possible combinations of their offspring? Create a DNA profile for both parents and one child by drawing a “gel” and writing in bands to represent the restriction fragments. Label the wells (mom, dad, child) and the (+) end of the gel.

Did OJ do it? Read the short article regarding the OJ case. Answer the Did OJ do it? Read the short article regarding the OJ case. Answer the questions in complete sentences O. J. Simpson was a Hall of Fame football player who became a running back for the Buffalo Bills after completing a storied college career at U. S. C. Other than his heroics on the field, Simpson gained fame by starring in many major motion pictures and in television commercials. In June, 1994, Simpson was accused of murdering his exwife, Nicole Brown Simpson, and her companion, Ron Goldman. At the trial which took place a year after the deaths, DNA fingerprinting evidence was presented for the first time in a major case. The evidence was overwhelming and irrefutable, yet the jury incomprehensibly came back with an innocent verdict. It was apparent that the prosecutorial attorneys made some errors in their presentation of the DNA evidence. However, subsequent cases have been very successfully prosecuted in light of what was learned through the Simpson trial.

What are the ingredients for DNA replication using PCR? 1. Original DNA 2. Heat What are the ingredients for DNA replication using PCR? 1. Original DNA 2. Heat (provided by a machine called a thermocycler) – Denatures (splits) original, double stranded DNA; cools for primers; warms for polymerase 3. Primers: Single stranded DNA that is complementary to regions that flank the DNA of interest – Allows for copying the DNA in that region only 4. DNA Polymerase: specifically heat resistant taq polymerase – base pairing to replicate original sequence 5. All 4 nucleotides (A, G, C, T) – Remember, you’re copying DNA…so you need the pieces to manufacture LOTS of new strands

STEPS TO PCR: • 1. Heat to Denature (94°C) • 2. Cool to anneal STEPS TO PCR: • 1. Heat to Denature (94°C) • 2. Cool to anneal primers (54°C) • 3. Elongation (72°C) – Adding new nucleotides using polymerase • 4. REPEAT An animated version of PCR
