Gel electrophoresis/Staining of Gel

  • Gel electrophoresis system
  • Previously amplified DNA samples (from part 1)
  • Agarose
  • 50x TAE buffer
  • Fast Blast™ DNA Stain

Procedure

The purpose of this part of the procedure was to use gel electrophoresis to separate and visualize the DNA fragments.

Refer to "Crime Scene Investigator: PCR Basics™ Kit". Biotechnology Explorer™. Bio--Rad Laboratories, Inc. for the complete procedure.

Results

No results were gained from this experiments. Errors were made in gel staining (overstaining) and bands were not visually distinguishable.
