Next-generation Sequencing and Bioinformatics for Plant Science
Edited by: Vijai Bhadauria
Review of next-generation sequencing and bioinformatics and applications in plants, in particular crop yield, drought tolerance and disease resistance.
Electrophoresis is the separation of charged molecules (DNA, RNA or protein) in an electrical field, usually in agarose or polyacrylamide gel.

Electrophoresis

Electrophoresis: Electrophoresis is a method of separating large molecules (e.g. DNA or protein). An electric current is passed through a medium containing the molecules, and each molecule travels at a different rate depending on its electrical charge, size and shape. Separation by electrophoresis is based on these differences. In electrophoresis, agarose and acrylamide gels are used for electrophoresis of proteins and nucleic acids.
