    Gel electrophoresis is a method used for separation and analysis of molecules such as DNA, RNA, and proteins, based on their sizes and polarity. DNA (deoxyribonucleic acid) is a molecule that carries most of our genetic information, and possesses a negative charge. During gel electrophoresis, DNA fragments can migrate through the gel also known as agarose when placed in a powerful electrical field. The rate at which the DNA fragments will move through the gel depends on their relative size. Horizontal gel slabs are commonly used on conducting gel electrophoresis. The agarose gel is poured onto a plastic plat forming wells, and then DNA samples are placed in small wells. When samples are added to their relative wells, gel and plastic plate are put into an electrophoresis chamber, and buffer is added. After the electrical current is turned on, DNA samples start to migrate. With staining process the DNA samples appear as series of bands spread from one end to the other of the gel.
