The flow of information from gene to phenotype is:
DNA --> mRNA --> protein --> metabolic pathways
In Griffith's experiment (infecting mice with Streptocoocus pneumoniae) he used two strains of bacteria, a "smooth" virulent strain with a polysaccharide coat and a non-virulent "rough" strain without a polysaccharide coat. After which of the treatments below did the mice survive?
Mice revieving dead smooth bacteria
In the 1940s, most scientists believed that the genetic material had to be protien. If this prevailing opinion had been right, what would Avery et al. have found in their experiments?
Protease, but not DNAse or RNAse would have destroyed transformation of rough bacteria
Hershey and Chase carried out an experiment to determine if DNA was also genetic material of bacterial viruses. Which of the following is not part of their experiments?
32P was found associated with phage coats
Tobacco mosaic virus consists of a protein coat surrounding RNA. A TMV strainA virus was stripped of its coat and a protein coat from strainB was reconstructed over the strainA RNA core. If this new hybrid virus is used to infect a tobacco leaf, which coat will be produced in the progeny viruses?
