Concept 4: A Hypothetical (Tutorial) DNA Mapping Example

Suppose we have a circular DNA molecule, called pTut (for "tutorial"), that is 7666 bp (7.666 kbp) long. (1 kbp = 1 kilobase pair = 1000 base pairs.) The assignment is to prepare a restriction map for the sites for the enzymes BglII, BstEII, and EcoRV.

This map will show the locations of the cutting sites of the three enzymes with respect to one another.
