People who carry a theoretical genetic disorder (called B-disease) can be identified from a 2kb DNA sequence. People who carry this genetic disorder have a single nucleotide polymorphism that results in a change of GTATTC to GGATTC, a site that only occurs once at nucleotide number 750 in this DNA sequence. Answer the following questions based on the information provided. a) How can you develop a simple molecular test to identify the genetic disorder?
