Understand the purpose and uses of gel electrophoresis.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Gel electrophoresis is a method for separation and analysis of macromolecules (DNA, RNA and proteins) and their fragments, based on their size and charge.
Gel electrophoresis is employed in clinical chemistry to segregate proteins based on their charge or size.
Moreover it is applied in biochemistry as well as molecular biology to segregate populations of nucleic acids fragments by length and to estimate the size of DNA and RNA.
The aim of employing this
technique is to illustrate how enzymes can be put into use in the field of genetic engineering.
Last but not least, Gel electrophoresis employs the incorporation of electrophoresis to separate DNA pieces.
