Food Borne Pathogens - Gel Results

posted May 17, 2019, 11:01 AM by Mark Eberhard   [ updated May 17, 2019, 11:06 AM ]

Lane 1 = M1M (5 fragments of 100, 300, 500, 1,000, and 2,000 base pairs)
Lane 2 = Shigella (reference standard of 175 and 1000 base pairs)
Lane 3 = + control (lab control version of Shigella produces fragments of 175 and 1800 bp)
Lane 4 = - control (no DNA)
Lane 5 = cheese + lab control
Lane 6 = sour cream + lab control
Lane 7 = bean layer + lab control
Lane 8 = salsa layer + lab control
Lane 9 = guacamole + lab control 

Did NOT test ...
  • 5L - the homogeneous mixture of the five layer bean dip, since it would not help identify which ingredient was the source of the shigella
  • 1 KB L - the fragments in this ladder were larger than the expected fragments from the shigella

We cannot afford to lose 5-8 class days in AP Biology and still be able to cover the entire course by the time of the national exam, thus we need to use our snow/cold days more productively.

Please complete the following tasks and bring them to class on Monday, February 04
ALL needed documents are under "Metabolism" 

You may print each document and complete them OR you can view the documents online and write you responses to the questions on line paper.  If you choose the second option PLEASE RESTATE the question in your answer!

Read CH 7 - Introduction & 7.1
Complete POGIL #8 - Cell Respiration an Overview (under "Metabolism" in "POGIL" folder)
Mastering Biology - 7.1 Oxidation/Reduction

Read CH 7.2-7.3
Complete POGIL #9 - Glycolysis and Kreb's Cycle (under "Metabolism" in "POGIL" folder)
Mastering Biology - 7.2-7.3 Glycolysis / Kreb's

Read CH 7.4
Complete POGIL #10 - Oxidative Phosphorylation (under "Metabolism" in "POGIL" folder)
Mastering Biology - 7.4 Electron Transport Chain

Weekend 02/01-02/03
Catalase Enzyme Reaction - POST LAB (on Google Classroom)
