Yeast Genetics Complementation Experiment: Procedural Flow Chart
1. Record the color of the parental strains of yeasts.
Accumulation of certain products in the enzyme pathway making adenine result in different pigmentations. Recording the color of the different strains of yeasts at first will help us later analyze the complementation results.
2. Prepare YPD plates of the parental strains for mating. Using two YPD plates – one for A and one for Alpha – stripe 3 different lines with the three different strains on each plate. Make sure to sterilize the scraper on a Bunsen Burner every time!
In this step, we are preparing our parental colonies to grow so that next week, we can cross them and see if the colonies are still able to grow and therefore deduce complementation patterns between the different strains of A and Alpha yeasts. Sterilizing the scraper is important for preventing cross-contamination of the yeasts. We want to make sure we are looking at each strain separately, so the Bunsen Burner should be used to completely sterilize the scraper being used to transfer the yeast colonies onto the YPD plates.
3. Place YPD plates in 30oC incubator.
The plates should incubate for about a week in order for the colonies to grow to a good experimental size.
4. Mate the A and Alpha plates by replica plating the stripes perpendicular to each other on a YPD plate. (Exact steps are outlined in following procedure.)
This is where the complementation tests begin. By replica plating, we can transfer the specific yeasts to another spot where we want them and then mate them to see if complementation occurs between different strands.
5. Label a fresh YPD plate with arrows indicating North and East, for aligning type A and type Alpha respectively.
The arrows will be used to align the lines on the two YPD plates containing the parent strains. This will orient us in the right direction when replica plating, keeping us from getting confused when performing the mating between the different strands.
6. Using sterile velvet squares, transfer the lines of yeast from one plate onto the YPD plate being used for complementation. Press the velvet cloth lightly on the bottom of the dish in order to transfer the yeast to the velvet. Use the arrows to orient yourself when pressing the velvet back down onto the mating plate.
This will allow us to mate the different strains. The velvet should not...


The Effects of Smoking on Lung Tissue - Biology - Lab Report

2559 words - 11 pages slides of both normal lung and bronchogenic carcinoma were also observed and drawn to assist with the study. After completing the experiment, the mean beat frequency was calculated for each variable using both trials from each student in the lab. A bar graph was then created using these averages to display the data. The standard error was also calculated for each average and plotted onto each bar on the graph. ResultsD.

We first covered basic diffusion: the movement of a substance from high concentrations to low concentrations. Then we moved onto the cell semipermeable membrane is what dictates which substances pass through. Following that, we covered osmosis: the movement of a solvent into a higher concentration in

An enzyme known as catalase facilitates this conversion reaction. The catalase enzyme acts as catalysis, helping lower the energy needed to activate the reaction while the enzyme itself is not affected. The reaction could take place without the help of catalase, but it

1573 words - 7 pages Biology is a huge part of our lives that not many people take the time to think about and consider each day. Taking a Biology course heightens your observation of things around you which are definitely aspects of biology. They are not only critical to us now, but will be critical for solving problems in the future. There are so many aspects of biology that are integrated into our daily life that we don't even realize. It is very important that

Well the most important thing that's in Troy Ville is probably the City Hall. It contains all the info on the city and all the documentaries of every body in the town. This acts as the nucleus and chromatin. Around the town there are high mountains which serve as a cell wall. Inside of this we have

Factors that affect plant growth - grade 11 biology - lab report

1573 words - 7 pages Factors that Affect Plant Growth lab Tegan Misuraca Purpose: This experiment was completed to show how light and nutrients affect plant growth. Theory​: Plants require sunlight because they have the ability to convert heat energy from sunlight into a usable energy, using photosynthesis. Without sunlight this process would not be able to occur and after a certain point the plant wouldn’t release oxygen and would die.Plant need sufficient amount

Effect of Temperature on Enzyme Activity - AP biology - Research Lab

898 words - 4 pages The Effect of Temperature on Enzyme Activity The purpose of this lab practice is to investigate the effects of temperature on the denaturation of enzymes. Introduction: The main biological concept explored was enzyme activity, enzymes are biological molecules (proteins) that act as catalysts and help complex reactions occur everywhere in life. Enzymes are impacted by temperature and pH of their environment, because these factors can denature an

1487 words - 6 pages Identifying pigments in spinach and red leaves using chromatography Abstract Inside----. Purpose of this lab was to identify the pigments in spinach and red leaves that make up their color. To do this an extract from the plants is added to a strip of chromatography paper and put into a solvent (10% acetone, 90% petroleum ether). The solvent gets sucked up and draws the extract with it. This action leaves different colored marks on the paper
