Imagine you are looking at a DNA fingerprint that shows an STR pattern of a mothers DNA and her childs DNA. Will all of the bands on the Southern Blot showing the childs DNA match those of the mother? Explain. (To help you answer this question, visit the Biology Animation Library at Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory and play the tutorial about the Southern Blot technique.) .)

    Yes, because the child developed from an egg produced by the mother.
    No, because a person’s DNA pattern changes with age.
    No, because the father contributed half of the childs DNA.
    Yes, because the DNA of mothers and children are identical.
