1. To identify unknown DNA sequence and to understand the processes of extracting said DNA.

Materials & Methods:

1. Receive code for DNA from PCR reaction in earlier lab for transect bacteria. 2. Identify bacteria species from code by using NCBI Blast website. []


Our DNA sample did not get an accurate code and were given a code from our instructor. After using NCBI Blast, we determined that it was chryseobacteria. From classes in a previous semester using the same transect,Colette McDonnell identified two bacteria DNA strands: chryseobacteria and streptomyces. [[1]] While one of these bacteria was identical in both readings, streptomyces are unique to Transect 2.
