What data does a sequencing chromatogram give??

For my lab we had to change the sequencing of Erv26 depending on our primer. We change the amino acid T69 from AAA to AUA. This is one of our figures but i am unsure how to interpret the data.

Can someone help me analyze the results of this experiment

If tryptophan were to serve to decrease gene expression, how could it interact with a repressor, and an activator, respectively, to mediate this decrease in trp operon expression?

In this scenario, which of these two transcription factors would be inherently capable of binding the DNA operator, and which needs help from tryptophan?

Mendel’s principle of independent assortment says that the genes controlling different traits are inherited independently of one another. Today, we know that is ONLY true when
