In this interactive activity from the Dolan DNA Learning Center, learn about gel electrophoresis, the standard technique that makes comparative analysis of DNA samples possible. The activity demonstrates, step by step, the process in which DNA fragments are sorted by size as they move through an electrically charged gel matrix.
This media asset comes from Gel Electrophoresis by Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory, Dolan DNA Learning Center.
