      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.

      Thanks 🙂

      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.
