  1. Types of point mutation
    • Silent
    • Missense
    • Nonsense
  2. Suppresor mutation
    Mutation in a different site from another mutation that corrects the problem (causes reversion)
  3. Group mutations
    • Deletions
    • Insertions
    • Translocations
    • Iversions
  4. Types of chemicial mutagen
    • Base analogs - 5-bromouracil
    • DNA Modifying agents - Nitrosoguanidine (methylation)
    • Intercalating agents - Benzopyrene
  5. Radiation that causes pyrimidine dimers
    • Low power, low penetration
    • Sunlight
  6. Methods of recombination
    • Meiosis - Eukaryotes, animals
    • Horizontal gene transfer - Prokaryotes
  7. Homologous recombination
    Exchange of alleles between chromosomes
  8. Recombination of foreign DNA
    • Homologous recombination
    • Site specific recombination
    • Transposition
  9. Types of horizontal gene transfer
    • Transformation - Competance (Natural, artificial)
    • Transduction - Viral vector
    • Conjugation - Bidirectional DNA transfer
  10. Lysogen
    Bacteria containing a prophage
