Science / Genetics / Electrophoresis: A method of separating large molecules (such as dna fragments or proteins) from a mixture of similar molecules. An electric current is passed through a medium containing the mixture, and each kind of molecule travels through the medium at a different rate, depending on its electrical charge and size. Agarose and acrylamide gels are the media commonly used for electrophoresis of proteins and nucleic acids.
Science / Genetics / Gamete: An haploid cell.gel electrophoresis the process by which nucleic acids (dna or rna) or proteins are separated by size according to movement of the charged molecules in an electrical field. MORE
