Notes, news, and information on human and general molecular biology. My particular interests lie in immunology, cancer biology, pathology, and human evolution. I have a weakness for cute animal pictures.

A comic about love-sick DNA fragments and gel electrophoresis.
What has my life come to.
Gel electrophoresis is a technique used in many different fields to separate DNA, RNA or protein particles by charge and size. DNA/RNA is commonly used in an agarose gel, whereas a polyacrilamide gel is used for proteins. Both gel types are subjected to a voltage that will bring the particles through the gel, however smaller particles will move through the gel more easily than large particles.
