Hello people, I need this one for my homework but can’t figure it out..
The question is:
Imagine you have a mutant but you don’t know the region where the mutant gene is allocated. How would you find out where the gene is located by using a genomic bank?
I think it isn’t possible with hybridization techniques because you dont have a primer? So im curious what the solution will be.
what organism? What mutation?
The question didn’t mension what organism or what mutation, its just a question in general i guess. It comes from molecular principles (david hyde), since I already had my test, the question is irrelevant to me now anyway.
And the answer?
knowing the organism is crucial but given that its a general question a general answer would be that you would use a nucleotide blast (given that you have the gene sequence).
I don’t think that would be the case. I’d expect "some" mutation happening and then realizing where it happened.
