1 Welcome to Molecular Biology Through Discovery Thursday, 28 August 2014 Strategies of Life / What is a Gene? What do we talk about? Determined by Questionnaires

2 Fraction of participants handing in questionnaires Tuesday, Aug 26 22% Fraction of participants handing in questionnaires Thursday, Aug 28 39%

3 Nope Not really Nope No, not really. I'm all set.

4 Nope Not.. particularly Not really.

5 Welcome to Molecular Biology Through Discovery Thursday, 28 August 2014 Strategies of Life / What is a Gene? What do we talk about? Determined by Questionnaires Were you able to find and download this article (and its companion) Do you foresee any particular problems... I have found the article, yes. Yes, I'm about to go home and read it No I do not.

6 Welcome to Molecular Biology Through Discovery Thursday, 28 August 2014 Strategies of Life / What is a Gene? What do we talk about? Determined by Questionnaires Were you able to find and download this article (and its companion) Do you foresee any particular problems... By the end, I didn't really have any idea of what Wrinch thought a gene was.

Determined by Questionnaires Were you able to find and download this article (and its companion) Do you foresee any particular problems... There is only one particular problem I had and that was visualization. Usually, article give out pictures to explain concepts in a clearer sense but this paper did not.

Determined by Questionnaires Were you able to find and download this article (and its companion) Do you foresee any particular problems... What I really loved about this article is how the author made it into a story. I did not even feel like I was reading a research article.

10 Welcome to Molecular Biology Through Discovery Thursday, 28 August 2014 Strategies of Life / What is a Gene? What do we talk about? Determined by Questionnaires 3&4 SL-4, SL-5..the interesting ones

11 Is skin amphipathic?

12 I would like to know what part of a Rabid Dog you mean by 1F.

13 Welcome to Molecular Biology Through Discovery Thursday, 28 August 2014 Strategies of Life / What is a Gene? What do we talk about? Determined by Questionnaires Do you want us just to mention the correlation between the unique start codons and the tRNA??

15 What is a gene? A gene is transcribed at a start codon.

16 DNA gene RNA ribosome protein Transcription Translation Flow of information In what process is the beginning of the gene central?

17 What is a gene? A gene is transcribed at a start codon. translated

18 What is a gene? The cell is able to read and recognize indicators in the genome. These indicators are known as start and stop codons. The start codon, ATG or AUG, is the indicator for the beginning a gene

21 Through analysis it can be determined with some measure of accuracy which are in the subset of AUG's which demarcate the beginnings of genes. I'm not sure what exactly makes the cell decide where the gene begins

22 What is a gene?
