    this is a terrific way to introduce electrophoresis to students! Wish I had been able to see this when I was doing research back in the late 70s!

    If you have ever wondered how scientists identify tiny molecules that are not visible through naked eyes, then you must know about the gel electrophoresis process. It is a process performed in lab via equipment like to separate and analyze macromolecules such as DNA, RNA and proteins according to their size and charge. It is useful for genetic analysis and nucleic acid fragments purification for advance research.
