Question : 53) After sequencing the entire genome of a novel organism by : 2134303
53) After sequencing the entire genome of a novel organism by the whole-genome shotgun approach, you use a computer program to search for start/stop signals for translation and homology searches based on similarity to cDNAs in the database. You predict approximately 20,000 genes. Is this an accurate representation of the total number of genes in the organism? Why or why not?
54) After SNP analysis of a region of the Apolipoprotein E gene, you determine that a patient carries the apoE4 allele. This allele is linked with Alzheimer’s disease. Counsel the patient regarding their prognosis.
