  1. Biotechnology Feud Teams Rules

  2. Biotechnology Feud Teams • Divide into teams of 5. • Choose a signaler for the group. • You may rotate as long as only one person from the group signals that the group has the answer.

  3. Biotechnology Feud Rules • The game show host will ask a question or describe a problem. • You may signal at any time that you have the answer. • The first hand signal recognized by the host will have first crack at the answer. • You have 30 s to discuss the answer after recognition • Each question will be worth one point if answered correctly. • If the answer is wrong another team may say “Challenge.” • The challenging group must then answer the question correctly. All the challenged teams points will be transferred to the challenging team if answered correctly. If the challenge is wrong, all the challenger’s points will be awarded to the other team.

  4. Biotechnology Feud Question 1 • Adenine, guanine, cytosine, and thymine are bases that are found in….. • 1. Prions. • 2. Glass bottles in the Wal-Mart pharmacy. • 3. RNA. • 4. DNA.

  5. Biotechnology Feud Question 2 • I am composed of two subunits. I am found in bacteria. My sister is found in plant cells and is larger than I am. I am ____. • 1. A DNA polymerase. • 2. An RNA polymerase. • 3. A nucleus. • 4. A protein. • 5. A ribosome

  6. Biotechnology Feud Question 3 • Open the envelope labeled “Mendel” and solve the problem.

  7. Biotechnology Feud Question 4 • The Father of Genetics often refers to this person. • 1. Watson. • 2. Franklin. • 3. Darwin. • 4. Mendel.

  8. Biotechnology Feud Question 5 • The cell theory was described by: • 1. Robert Hooke. • 2. Antony van Leeuwenhoek. • 3. Rudolf Virchow. • 4. Francis Crick.

  9. Biotechnology Feud Question 6 • Proteins were once believed to be the “genetic material” of life because: • 1. A high number of permutations were possible with 20 amino acids. • 2. People had discovered diseases caused by prions. • 3. Lamarkian theory supported it. • 4. People liked to eat meat.

  10. Biotechnology Feud Question 7 • The blank envelop contains a gelatin capsule that represents a cell. The black and gold threads represent DNA. Pack the DNA into the cell and minimize the volume that it takes up.

  11. Biotechnology Feud Question 8 • An enzyme that attaches an RNA primer to the single-stranded DNA during replication is called: • 1. Helicase. • 2. Polymerase. • 3. Gyrase. • 4. Primase.

  12. Biotechnology Feud Question 9 • In a recent poll (this class) on labeling food containing genetically modified components were: (for-against) • 1. 17-3, 2 indifferent • 2. 11-10, 1 indifferent • 3. 4-16, 1 indifferent • 4. 1-1, 20 indifferent

  13. Biotechnology Feud Question 10 • Open the envelope labeled Protein. The entire classroom is a cell and each group is a chromosome. To survive, you need to make proteins. Scramble about and find all the components you need to make proteins. Line them up properly and signal when you’re done.

  14. Biotechnology Feud Question 11 • One Gene-One Enzyme Hypothesis was proposed by: • 1. Watson and Crick. • 2. Ben and Jerry. • 3. Tom and Jerry. • 4. Abbot and Costello. • 5. Beadle and Tatum. • 6. Muldar and Scully.

  15. Biotechnology Feud Question 12 • A Codon is: • 1. The name of an alien race being held captive in Roswell, NM. • 2. The start of a gene. • 3. Three nucleotides that code for an amino acid. • 4. An amino acid.

  16. Biotechnology Feud Question 13 • I am part sugar, part phosphate, and part purine. What am I? • 1. A protein. • 2. A nucleotide. • 3. An alcoholic. • 4. A gene.

  17. Biotechnology Feud Question 14 • Here is a strand of DNA. What does the complementary strand look like? AGG CAT TTG ACT GGC GCA

  18. Biotechnology Feud Question 15 • What are three kinds of RNA?

  19. Biotechnology Feud Question 16 • E. coli contains a genome of 4,639,221 base pairs, coding for approximately 4,300 genes. Assume DNA replicates at 500 nucleotides/second in bacteria. That would take approximately 155 minutes to replicate the entire genome. However, E. coli replicates in 20 minutes. How?

  20. Biotechnology Feud Question 17 • “Golden Rice” refers to genetically modified rice that is yellow because • 1. The processors did not wash the rice clean. • 2. The rice was transformed with a yellow pigment gene from a bacterium. • 3. The rice was transformed with a beta carotene gene. • 4. The rice will make the inventors lots of money.

  21. Biotechnology Feud Question 18 • Transcription is the process by which • 1. Prions are made. • 2. mRNA is made from DNA. • 3. Proteins are made from mRNA. • 4. A pharmacist deciphers the doctor’s handwriting on prescriptions.

  22. Biotechnology Feud Question 19 • Which one of the following words describes the process by which a bacteriophage (bacterial virus), infects a bacterial cell? • 1. Translation. • 2. Transportation. • 3. Transduction. • 4. Transcription. • 5. Teleportation.

  23. Biotechnology Feud Question 20 • Griffith used heat killed Streptococcus pneumoniae to tranform avirulent strains to become virulent. DNA was the “transforming factor.” Was it chromosomal DNA or plasmid DNA?
