Mitochondrial DNA Isolation

What’s mitochondrial DNA? mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) is a genetic material of the mitochondria, the organelles that generate energy for the cell. In mammals, mtDNA makes up less than 1% of the total cellular DNA, but in plants the amount is variable. It codes for ribosomal RNA and transfer RNA, but only some mitochondrial proteins (up to 30…

Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) and Databases

What are SNPs? Single nucleotide polymorphisms or SNPs (pronounced “snips”) are DNA sequence variations that occur when a single nucleotide (A,T,C,or G) in the genome sequence is altered. For example a SNP might change the DNA sequence AAGGCTAA to ATGGCTAA. For a variation to be considered a SNP, it must occur in at least 1%…
