BIO162: Principles of Biology


Do Background Research on Starch Branching Enzymes

In the lab, "Why Do Mendel's Peas Wrinkle," you will explore a classic experiment in the history of genetics research. Additionally, you will examine the role of starch branching enzymes in the process.

To complement the work which you will do in the lab, you will also be identifying and using research articles in journals which address issues relevant to the Mendel's Peas lab. This will involve searching several databases, such as Google Scholar and Biological Abstracts. The following guide will walk you through the steps to do this.
