Daniel Zimmerman March 9 th Biology Lab 1. Introduction: a) We are experimenting on Gel Electrophoresis and how it works. When a specimen is inserted in to the gel and electricity is applied the negative aspect of DNA moves closer to the positive pole. The gel helps to slow the movement of the molecules of DNA and since no two DNA molecules are they same it is very easy to identify an exact match for example a crime scene where blood or hair is found from a suspect. The buffer that is added to the chamber helps lower any resistance that the electricity might occur. b) The purpose of this first experiment was to help the class to become more familiar with Gel Electrophoresis. Experimenting with this will help us have better results in the real DNA Electrophoresis. It was also to show us the specific steps in preparing and performing the experiment. c) I expected for the colors to move in the gel but since I did not know the electron charge of the colors. So I could not form a definite guess on what the
