Gel electrophoresis is a procedure for separating a mixture of molecules through a stationary material (gel) in an electrical field. DNA fragments are separated by size as they move through the gel matrix; DNA strands are then identified. Hope this helps…good luck! Below is a great link to use a ‘virtual gel electrophoresis’ process – it’s super!
