Here's how I solve this:

Restriction Mapping example

Dr. Bird goes over this restriction mapping example.  Here are the data:

Create a circular restriction map from this.

The answer key is here:


You can make it larger by clicking on the YouTube logo in the bottom-right corner and making it full screen from the YouTube site.
