Epigenomes is a lecture/article in the gene transcription series.

You are free to take this quiz based on epigenomes at any time.

To improve your score, read and study the lecture, the links contained within, listed under See also, and in the {{gene project}} template.

This should give you adequate background to get 100 %.

As a "learning by doing" resource, this quiz helps you to assess your knowledge and understanding of the information, and it is a quiz you may take over and over as a learning resource to improve your knowledge, understanding, test-taking skills, and your score.

A suggestion is to have the lecture available in a separate window.

To master the information and use only your memory while taking the quiz, try rewriting the information from more familiar points of view, or be creative with association.

Enjoy learning by doing!

Quiz[edit]







  

1

True or False, The purpose of a treatment group with respect to an epigenome is to describe natural processes or phenomena for the first time relative to a control group.

TRUE
FALSE

2

Several promoter elements have been previously identified in eukaryotes, but those cannot account for transcription from most RNA polymerase II-transcribed

3

True or False, The epigenome is located in the distal promoter.

TRUE
FALSE

5

Which of the following is not a transcriptional characteristic of the epigenome?

located between nucleotides -8 and +2 relative to the transcriptional start site (+1)
G/A/T-G/C+1-G-T/C-G-G-G/A-A-G/C
in eukaryotes
TATA-less genes
a consensus sequence

6

True or False, A control group may be used in epigenomes to demonstrate no effect or a standard effect versus a novel effort applied to a treatment group.

TRUE
FALSE

7

Which of the following are phenomena associated with the epigenome?

transcription of A1BG
directs activator-dependent but TFIID-independent transcription
TATA box-less promoters
initiator element
mediator dependence
core promoter
RNA polymerase II holoenzyme

8

True or False, The epigenome is found in the promoter regions of about 1% of human genes.

TRUE
