  1. Really great presentation! What exactly does it mean that it was at 2 points for the conjugation cycle?

    1. Usually most genes which have a role in DNA repair, such as Rad51, are expressed at two times during conjugation.

    1. We cant prove that our gene product actually helps in the DNA repair pathway yet, that would require further testing. We now know that the protein is expressed at the same time as others involved in DNA repair.

    1. If only one primer was used the replication of DNA would not function properly only duplicating DNA linearly instead of exponentially, in order to make enough to show up on a gel.
