Hi, I did Heredity last year but I missed a lot of topics...luckily there wasn't much on them and I had a lot on my paper, but I still can't tell the difference between mitosis and meiosis....Ehehe... Help?
Mitosis occurs in somatic (or body) cells while meiosis occurs in sex cells (or "gametes") only.
Meiosis also has 2 stages, like (I'm going to use abbreviations because I'm lazy) P1 M1 A1 T1 -(another space here for G1 and stuff again)- P2 M2 A2 T2. Also, meiosis 2 (the second stage) is the same (practically) as mitosis and meiosis DOES NOT occur in gametes. It CREATES gametes. It OCCURS in germ cells.
More info on them - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Germ_cell
Minor nitpick but there is no interphase after meiosis I. It pretty much goes straight to meiosis II.

any one know of any really good websites for learning sanger DNA sequencing analysis? i need a refresher on how to analyze those annoying electrophoresis gels.

Wikipedia has a great resource for Sanger sequencing, other than that, davidson.edu has a pretty good intro on Sanger: http://www.bio.davidson.edu/courses/mol ... d_page.htm

should we know about modern genetics analysis for this event?

Well it doesn't specifically say in the rules, but I've seen questions here and there about it. I wouldn't worry too much about it, the main topics on the rules are what you should mainly focus on.

I'm having trouble understanding the DNA replication process. What role does the rRNA play in it? Additionally, what is the polymerase?

rRNA has no part as far as I know in DNA replication. It stands for ribosomal RNA, and is used in translation.

Polymerase is the actual enzyme that attaches the new bases to the template strands.

On my regionals this year, there was one question me and my partner couldn't answer. What is R phase of the cell life cycle?
