Stages The sections of DNA that are cut out are called restriction fragments. This yields thousands of restriction fragments of all different sizes because the base sequences being cut may be far apart (long fragment) or close together (short fragment). Stages of DNA Profiling
Stage 3: Fragments are separated on the basis of size using a process called gel electropho...
