What is the difference between periods and groups on the periodic table of elements?
Periods are the horizontal rows across the table. The number of protons in the nucleus increase by one moving from left to right. Groups are the vertical columns of the table. These elements share similar properties, which usually includes having the same number of electrons in their valence shell.
Describe the three phases of polymerase chain reaction (PCR).
PCR is used to amplify a target piece of DNA. First, the double helix is denatured (separated into single strands) by heating. Second is the annealing phase, in which the solution is cooled to allow primers (short strand of DNA) to bind to the target DNA. The solution is then heated slightly to begin the third phase: elongation. During this phase, nucleotides extend from the primer, forming the complimentary chain to the target DNA. This cycle is repeated, doubling the amount of DNA each time.
