Unit 5- 2018
Unit 5 Assignments
9/15/2018: Some of the assignments below are from 2017 (and the 8th edition). Check back often as updates and modifications will be made on a daily basis throughout the unit
1-Fall Break Assignments- FINAL. I mean it this time! Updated @ 10:08 Thursday night (9/20/18)

4- Highly Recommended to watch:
Watch the overall process of replication: http://highered.mheducation.com/sites/9834092339/student_view0/chapter14/how_nucleotides_are_added_in_dna_replication.html
There are other videos on this site that are very helpful and go through the process step by step. Link to overall site: http://glencoe.mheducation.com/sites/007664796x/student_view0/index.html
1- BioFlix- Transcription and Translation: http://media.pearsoncmg.com/bc/bc_0media_bio/bioflix/bioflix.htm?c7eproteinsynthesis
2. Rock Pocket Mouse- Mutations
3-Ch 17 Review Questions. Required.
4- Case Study: Cystic Fibrosis and Protein Synthesis
1. Bozeman- Gene regulation video. Here's the worksheet.
2. Lac Operon Virtual Activity
3. Operon WS (*I will give you a hard copy of the key once completed)
4. Chapter 18 Review (required) WS
5.HHMI Click and Learn (Group assignment in class):
Gene Regulation: Lactase - HHMI Click and Learn
Worksheet for activity
6. Gene Regulation in Eukaryotes Webquest- will be primarily done in class, unless we're running short on time. If that's the case, you must complete at home [*make sure you THOROUGHLY read this handout (ex- Epigenetics, Homeobox...aka 'Hox'... genes), since there is likely a test question or 2]. *Use this link for Freeman site if link on WQ won't open. Must download the animation first.
7. Stickleback- Gene Switches. NEED MARKERS (not enough time to do in 2018)
8. Be sure and watch Bozeman - Epigenetics. Other good ones: https://www.wehi.edu.au/wehi-tv/x-inactivation-and-epigenetics and also, Crash Course (Hank). Be sure and read this brief article on epigenetics. *Be prepared to answer this (or something similar): How can DNA between identical twins be the same, but phenotypes expressed differently?
8. Ch 18-part 3 PPt is posted above in PPt section of blog (Sections 18.4 & 18.5)-You must know:
1-Bozeman- Viruses. Here's the video guide.
2- Ch 19 Questions (required questions are on masteringbiology.com)
3- Do Virus WQ
1. Plasmid Mapping Worksheet: ONLY Problems 1-4 are required (omit 5 & 6)
3. Until fairly recently, there weren't many good CRISPR videos out there, as it is a 'relatively' new technology. Now, there's a LOT! I'll show one of these in class, but here's some more good ones
5. Use this as a study guide: Ch 20 Questions
CHAPTER 21: Most of this chapter will be done in the Evolution unit.
There are only a couple of concepts you have to be familiar with for Unit 5 test from Chap 21:
1) transposons (watch this video and make notes), other good videos: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XYZHMGUGq6o
2) Hox (homeobox) genes (watch this video and do this WS). Refer to Ch 21 PPt (left column, scroll up to PPt section of blog). DNA and protein sequencing will be primarily done in Unit 6 (Evolution) with BLAST Lab on desktop computers.
3) Watch: How genes evolve- gene duplication
4) Continue Biotechnology and Genomics Webquest started in Ch 20
Lab Bench 6 II Worksheet (Electrophoresis). Attach to the front of the lab when you turn it in
1-Electrophoresis- Directions (general directions for making gels)
2- Bio Rad Lab: "Restriction Digestion and Analysis of Lambda DNA"- I can't upload this, so do not lose your hard copy! There are some modifications to this lab, so you must also refer to these directions.
3- Electrophoresis PPt- Clearly explains restriction enzymes (endonucleases), restriction fragments, short tandem repeats and the lab procedure itself
4- Need help with graphing your restriction fragment data or using a standard curve? Read this
5- Semilog graph (to make Standard Curve)
6- General Directions-
Drosophila Lab Report (*this is from the last unit, but it's due in the 'middle' of this unit. FYI- we did not do a formal write-up in 2017)
Biotechnology Interactive Sites (DNA WebLabs) @ http://learn.genetics.utah.edu/
Articles to read:
What is a Hox gene?
Unit 5 Review
Make sure you do the questions I gave you from Ch 17, 18 and 20. Although I didn't require them for grading purposes, I heavily emphasized that you must know them for the test. And make sure you go over the PPts from Ch 16 (Replication) and Ch 19 (viruses)
Unit 5 PPts & Prezis
Ch 16-B (Foglia)
Ch 17-B (Foglia)
Ch 18- #1 (*Foglia)
Ch 18- #2 (*Foglia)
Ch 18- #3: has sections 18.4 & 18.5 - cell differentiation & Hox genes & cancer (proto-oncogenes and tumor suppressor)
Ch 21 (most of this is covered in Unit 6. Do go over Hox genes)
David Knuffke Prezis:
*All of his Prezis can be found here (just search for the topic).
Here are a few I directly linked for you. You must know this information:
Gene Expression - WATCH THIS!
Videos, Lectures & other Info (*includes Fall Break Assignments)
I'm in the process of editing these. Check back soon!
Fall Break Assignments- FINAL. Updated @ 10:00 Thursday night (9/20)
1- Leading and Lagging strands (Replication)
2- Kahn Academy- Replication
1- This guy gets my vote for the best AP Bio lectures. Go to youtube and search for BleierBiology. Here's a link to the playlists he has for this unit: www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL6yYftesrJicOgr8plRfVyvGQZPOfaJRk
2- Go to youtube.com and search for ‘Science with Mr J’. He’s got video lectures for every chapter & topic we study. Some of the videos may be a little long, but he does a good job explaining concepts using relateable examples. I think most of you will like him. 😊
