    I wrote Genetic Screening too oddly enough...and all my friends wrote gel electrophorisis,

    Hmm i guess it was the word "overall" that maybe caused the confusion. Gel electrophorisis is certainly one of the component experimental techniques of the whole procedure of studying a DNA sample..but to say its the overall procedure would surely be incorrect.

    Anyhow..its only 2 marks, and the rest of the paper was okay.

    Peace.

    THATS WHAT I SAID!, BECAUSE GENETIC SCREENING INVOLVES CARRYING OUT GEL ELECTROPHORESIS FIRST!
