    A restriction map is a map of known restriction sites within a sequence of DNA. Restriction mapping requires the use of restriction enzymes

    EmmaH one thing: That thought never orcure to me, the only reason i can this is becuase i ones was in your positon and asked for answers - So i don't judge. anyway back to the case.

    See attachment: A restriction map tell you where on DNA string where a specific restriction enzyme is going to work: A analogy for this would be a real map: imagen you have a lot of cities with specific names (they are enzymes) and the whole map discribe how the cities are placed acording to each other.

    The restriction map i used as example is the plasmid pGLO

    Remember that plasmids are DNA circles that is why it is a circle on the figure in the attachment.

    ok i get the fact that a restriction map shows where ba restriction enzyme is but..what is a restriction enzyme?

    A restriction enzyme is a enzyme that is able to cut the DNA into smaller strings every time there is a specfic sequence of bases.

    oh ok so the restricted enzymes are like the cutting toold for when you want to splice dna and the restiction nmap nshows where restiction dna is right?

    The most common thing is that it is a palindromic sequence

    palindromic sequenence?

    Emm... palindromic comes from the Greek word palindromos and means 'coming again, which again goes the same way'. (symmetric)

    alright so i got it earlier when i said.....the restricted enzymes are like the cutting toold for when you want to splice dna and the restiction nmap nshows where restiction dna is right?

    Well: more to say that the restiction map show where restiction enzyme works on the DNA... kinda like a blueprint

    Last thing: this is just to show the concept of a palindromic sequenence (see attachment)
