Genetics > Biotechnology > Topic 2: Get the Gene

(1 of 2)

Once a researcher has determined which gene will alter phenotype, the next step is to get his/her hands on the actual DNA for the gene. This involves using molecular genetics techniques to locate the sequence and make copies of the gene.


What you'll learn in this topic

  • How to find the sequences of a gene in a genomic database
  • How to amplify the gene from cell DNA using The Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR).
  • The function of several sequence landmarks in the gene

Your task is to find the sequence of the G-TMT gene and make copies of the DNA for it using PCR.
