Once a gene is cloned, its complete nucleotide sequence can be determined.
· The automated procedure for this is based on a technique called the __.
o This method was developed by British biochemist __.
- dideoxyribonucleotide (or dideoxy, for short) chain termination method
- Frederick Sanger
T or F
Knowing the sequence of a gene allows researchers to compare it directly with gene in other species, where the function of the gene product may be known.
T or F:
If two genes from different species are quite similar in sequence, it is reasonable to suppose that their gene products perform similar functions. In this way, sequence comparisons provide clues to a gene’s function.
