A student experiment (^.^)

Agarose gel which shows genome size Posted by Hello
Today, the experiment started at 11 AM, finished at 7 PM. The expereiment name is high-biotechnology experiment. Today's experiment is to investigate my genotype of Aldehyde dehydrogenase 2. This is one of the enzyme to resolve alcohol. If the genotype is wild, the person can drink much. If the type is both wild and mutant, the person can drink a little. If the type is mutant, the person can drink little. 40% of Japanese have both wild and mutant and only mongoroid has mutant genotype. That is why Asian can drink less than a white and a black. I thought my genotype is mutant, because I couldn't drink. I was looking forward to know the answer, but the experiment didn't succeeded. Tomorrow, I will try this again!(^^)! I never give up!!
