1) Which RNAs exist in the plant cell (abundant and less abundant)? How do regulatory RNAs influence gene expression in the cell? How can this be used in biotechnological applications? Give one concrete example.

1) Given are two graphs with phenotypic data concerning mutants of 3 genes. Use these to determine the epistatic relations between the three genes involved, e.g. a switch regulatory pathway or a substrate dependent pathway. (Tip: study/take a look at the scheme used in the slides)

2) Explain the differences between QTL and GWAS. (don't give yourself a carpal tunnel by writing down al the statistics. Have an idea of how the statistics work. The question wants to see if you understand why they are two separate techniques.)
