    The purpose of this lab was to observe the different amount of distances each DNA samples travel when placed in a gel-electrophoresis box. Restriction endonucleases are critical tools in recombinant DNA methodology. Electrophoresis is the method of determining the size of fragments that are cut by restriction enzymes. These restriction enzymes always cut at their specific protein recognition sites. This is very useful in the sense that no two restriction enzymes codes for exactly the same recognition site, giving it a unique characteristic that is specific for a strand of DNA. Gel electrophoresis is a technique used to separate different sized fragments of DNA or RNA with the use of an electric field. When a molecule enters an electric field, the speed at which the molecule moves is influenced by several factors including: the charge of the molecule, the strength of the electrical field, the size and shape of the molecule, and the density of the medium (in this case the agarose gel) through which the molecule moves. Because of this, scientists are able to separate different groups of DNA or RNA molecules by first positioning all the molecules at a uniform starting point on the agarose gel and then placing the gel in a chamber containing buffer solution and electrodes. A buffer is a solution that adds extra ions to the gel enhancing the conductivity in the agarose gel matrix. Once in the chamber containing buffer solution and electrodes, the molecules of DNA will begin to migrate through the gel and form bands due to the negative charge of the phosphate groups in the backbone of DNA moving towards the positive electrode.…

    5. Van Buren, squired into office by the close popular vote but by the comfortable margin of 170 to 124 votes (for all the Whigs combined) in the Electoral College N. Big Woes for the “Little Magician” 1. Martin Van Buren, eighth president, was the first to be born under the American flag 2. An accomplished strategist and spoils man—the “wizard of Albany”—he was also a statesman of wide experience in both legislative and administrative life 3. From the outset the new president labored under sever handicaps a. As a machine-made candidate, he incurred the resentment of many Democrats—those who objected to having a “bastard politician” smuggled into office behind Jackson b. Mild-mannered Martin Van Buren seemed to rattle in the military boots of his testy predecessor; the people felt let down and Van Buren inherited the Jackson’s enemies c. Van Buren’s four years overflowed with toil and trouble; a rebellion in Canada in 1837 stirred up ugly incidents along the northern frontier and threatened to trigger war with Britain; the president attempted to play a neutral game d. The antislavery agitators in the North were in full cry; among other grievances, they were condemning the prospective annexation of Texas; worst of all, Jackson bequeathed to Van Buren the makings of a searing depression—hard times ordinarily blight the reputation o the president and Van Buren was no exception O. Depression Doldrums and the Independent Treasury 1. The panic of 1837 was a financial sickness of the times; its basic cause was rampant speculation prompted by a mania of get-rich0quickism—gamblers in western land s were doing a “land-office business” on borrowed capital, much of it the shaky currency of “wildcat banks”—the speculative craze spread to canal, roads, railroads, and slaves 2. But speculation alone did not cause the crash; Jacksonian finance, including the Bank War and the Specie Circular, gave an additional jolt to an already teetering structure a.
