Year 12 Biology: Gel Electrophoresis

April 23, 2021

Our Year 12 ATAR Biology students are currently learning about Biotechnology. During week 1 of Term 2, the students investigated applications such as gel electrophoresis by completing practical experiments in class.

Gel electrophoresis is a procedure used to separate molecules such as DNA by size. The separation of these molecules is achieved by placing them in a gel with small pores and creating an electric field across the gel. Scientists can use this information to determine genetic relationships.

Here are some photos of the students investigating this procedure.
