    How does a genomic library differ from a cDNA library?

    A) A genomic library contains only noncoding sequences, whereas a cDNA library contains only coding sequences.

    B) A genomic library varies, dependent on the cell type used to make it, whereas the content of a cDNA library does not.

    C) A genomic library can be made using a restriction enzyme and DNA ligase only, whereas a cDNA library requires both of these as well as reverse transcriptase and DNA polymerase.

    D) The genomic library can be replicated but not transcribed.

    E) The genomic library contains only the genes that can be expressed in the cell.

    C) A genomic library can be made using a restriction enzyme and DNA ligase only, whereas a cDNA library requires both of these as well as reverse transcriptase and DNA polymerase.

    Sequencing an entire genome, such as that of C. elegans, a nematode, is most important because

    B) it allows research on a group of organisms we do not usually care much about.

    C) the nematode is a good animal model for trying out cures for viral illness.

    D) a sequence that is found to have a particular function in the nematode is likely to have a closely related function in vertebrates.

    E) a sequence that is found to have no introns in the nematode genome is likely to have acquired the introns from higher organisms
    D) a sequence that is found to have a particular function in the nematode is likely to have a closely related function in vertebrates.

    The major advantage of using artificial chromosomes such as YACs and BACs for cloning genes is that
