COMPARISON OF FOUR-, SIX-, AND EIGHT-bp CUTS IN CALF THYMUS DNA

Students use this laboratory exercise, restriction enzymes to recognize a four-, six-, and eight-nucleotide sequence. Assuming that the four component nucleotides (A, C, T, G) are distributed randomly within a DNA molecule, then any four nucleotides can occur, on average, every 256 nucleotides, a six-nucleotide recognition site occurs every 4096 nucleotides, and an eight-nucleotide recognition site occurs every 65,536 nucleotides.

Lesson Planet has given me great ideas to use in Phonics and Math this year. My students comprehension skills have improved so much because of the great lessons I have found!
