Gel Electrophoresis--The Easy Way for Students
VanRooy, Wilhelmina; Sultana, Khalida
Teaching Science, v56 n2 p31-33 Jun 2010
This article describes a simple, inexpensive, easy to conduct gel-electrophoresis activity using food dyes. It is an alternative to the more expensive counterparts which require agarose gel, DNA samples, purchased chamber and Tris-borate-EDTA buffer. We suggest some learning activities for senior biology students along with comments on several on-line resources. (Contains 6 photos.)
