Analysis of Spliced DNA Through Gel Electrophoresis Abstract: The purpose of this experiment was to determine the size of already cut pieces of DNA using the process of gel electrophoresis, which separated the DNA fragments according to size. We found that PstI restriction enzyme produced the most lambda DNA fragments, so it had some smaller molecules than the other enzymes. The uncut lambda DNA only produced one fragment because it was so large and the HindIII produced more fragments than the EcoRI. Procedure: Obtain four microtubes and label them as L (uncut lambda DNA), P (Pstl lambda digest), E (EcoRI lambda digest), and H (HindIII lambda digest). Using a new pipet each time, transfer 10 ul of the appropriate DNA sample to each test tube. Add 2 ul of loading dye to each tube and mix the contents either by centrifuging or flicking the tube lightly. For the gel electrophoresis, prepare an agarose gel with wells and place it in the electrophoresis chamber. Fill the chamber and cover the gel with buffer. Make sure

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
