DNA is Pretty Neat
My Gel Electrophoresis
Here is a DNA gel I ran in lab.
The horizontal lines are the stained DNA molecules
How to run a gel?
- Make the gel
- Put DNA in the gel
- Run an electrical current through the gel(DNA will be attraced towards the anode)
- Stain the Gel
- Take a picture under UV light
What is DNA?
- Deoxyribonucleic Acid
- Made up of Pyrimidines and Purines
- Has a phosphate backbone (negative charge!)
