Press release assignment
Should be 300-400 words.
About: evolution and natural selection to the public by means of describing the PTC gene experiment.
Write a press release, make sure you have all five W’s in your story (who, what, where, when, and why). In journalism. And that you have a catchy headline.
Your goal is to make the results and discussion section into a story that is accurate and interesting to the public. Your press release should include ideas about evolution and natural selection.
The Rubric for the assignment:
Inverted Pyramid style:
Content and style:
(These is the PTC results and discussion that may help to complete the press release assignment)
Determination of The Genotype.
DNA Replication and PCR similarities:
DNA Replication and PCR differences:
Both involves a template strand.
Length of DNA
Both processes need DNTPS
DNA polymerase enzyme of their function.
Types of polymerase
Both are involved in increasing number of copies of parental
In each step of PCR
The reason for each step of PCR:
The purpose of this study is to determine the PTC genotype. The two most common alleles differ is PAV and AVI. In our experiment for this study the results show that without DNA cells could not reproduce and the high heat may kill cells. For each person, its necessary to have fresh micropipette tips because when the plunger pressed again, the liquid is dispensed. In figure2, in each step of PCR are important. By using PCR, DNA sequence can be amplified a lot of times producing enough DNA copies. Furthermore, PCR requires a DNA polymerase enzyme that makes new standard of DNA. While complementary base pairing is necessary in this study, which it is the bond between genuine and cytosine.
