Watch this webinar to learn all about restriction enzymes, and how the MCAT will test these “molecular scissors” in the context of DNA cloning. You will learn about DNA cloning, how to read a restriction enzyme table, and how to identify cut sites.
At a glance
Be able to read a restriction enzyme table and identify restriction enzyme cut sites
Be able to read a plasmid
Translate a gel into restriction enzyme digest results
Use antibiotic resistances to predict colony growth
Identify cloning errors
Definitions of vector, insert, and recombinant plasmid
On the MCAT
Restriction enzymes will appear in text or in a table
You don't need to memorize restriction enzyme sites, but you do need to predict where they might cut
I think these webinars are really helpful! I like how they’re styled like a TED talk, so they don’t interfere with the day, but they’re really helpful review 🙂
I found everything helpful about these webinars: the explanations, the illustrations, just everything!
Amazing material conveyed concisely and in great detail!
The wealth of information and sample questions are great.
