Electrophoresis of DNA and RNA Fragments
Characterization of DNA and RNA samples usually involves electrophoretic analysis. This chapter reviews basic principles and applications of electrophoresis, distinguishing between single field and pulsed field techniques. Also included is a review of the various matrices commonly used in molecular biology (agarose, acrylamide, Hydro-Link™). Methods of purification, detection and identification are discussed.
