  1. What would have been your next step if it had shown that the gene was up-regulated as heavily in the PCR in figure 4b as the one in 4a?

    1. This would have been a potentially revolutionary discovery since the regulation was found to be about 20x compared to untreated DNA, but future steps could have included gene knockout experiments and western blotting to directly measure protein levels.

  2. What would it mean if Badcp was involved in the DNA damage repair pathway? What would some future experiments from that be?

    1. Future steps could include gene knockout experiments to further understand what each exon does in the gene and western blotting to directly measure protein levels.

    1. Our genes were assigned to us, but all genes were chosen based on their expression patterns being similar to genes known to participate in the DNA damage repair pathway.
