    Q about genetic techniques

    Advertisements



    Q:A 28y woman and a 25y man present fore genetic counseling. Both are white and have one sibling affected with cystic fibrosis. The most appropriate method to assess the risk of transmitting cystic fibrosis to a potential child would be:

    A. biochemical testing
    B. FISH
    D. PCR
    E. Western blot analysis



    The correct answer is D, but I think all the 4 answers work. A and E could examine the defect protein, B and D could examine the defect DNA. Need some help here, thank you!!!
