Question 2

Which one of the following statements regarding restriction/modifying enzymes used in recombinant DNA technology is correct?

Question 3

The table given below shows the characters shared between two taxa based on the presence (+) and absence (-) of data.

Which of the following pairs represent the Jaccard’s coefficient and simple matching coefficient respectively?

Question 4

Which of the following statement is true for Fasciola hepatica (liver fluke)?

Question 5

The λ cohesive ends are called the cos sites and they play distinct roles during the λ infection cycle.
A) They allow the linear DNA molecule that is injected into the cell to be circularized, which is a necessary prerequisite for insertion into the bacterial genome
B) The role of the cos sites is to act as recognition sequences for an endonuclease that cleaves the catenane at the cos sites, producing individual lambda genomes. This endonuclease, which is the product of gene A on the lambda DNA molecule, creates the single stranded sticky ends, and acts in conjunction with other proteins to package each λ genome into a phage head structure.
C) Cos site have origin of replication and promoters for early genes essential for regulation of lytic-lysogenic decision
Which of the following statement is true for λ phage cos sites?

B) Phenological parameters include temperature and precipitation records of a particular geographical zone.

C) Phenological maps are made by data recording of plant phenophase along with their geographical coordinates.

D) Phenological vegetation period can be considered as time span of phenophases of indigenous plants.
