Biology 207 - Practice questions 2 - Human chromosomes
Question 1 The Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (Google: omim) database is a catalog of
human genetics. As an example of how it works try looking up the two human Telomerase
components: TERT (the protein) and TERC (the RNA).
a) What do the abbreviations TERT and TERC stand for?
b) What is the cytological locations of these genes?
c) Find these genes on the human chromosome figure from the lecture 3 handout.
Question 2 Make a timeline showing the events of a typical cell cycle (G ,1S, G ,2mitosis,
cytokinesis) and add when Histones, Cohesins, and Condensins are added to DNA and when
they are removed.
Question 3 A human cell is a / a . M
