Abstract

In the Animal Genetics simulation, you will learn about Mendelian inheritance and how a mutation in a DNA sequence can give rise to an altered phenotype. With the aim of identifying the gene that causes double‐muscling in cattle, you will use polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and gel electrophoresis to search for differences in the animals’ genomes.
