Event Details

What molecule will be first to the finish line? To study highly purified materials and molecules that are similar in size and electric charge, scientists use gel electrophoresis. This is a technique also used to separate DNA for genetic testing, determine susceptibility to disease, and conduct DNA fingerprinting to solve crimes. In this experiment, You'll make, pour and load your own gel with six food coloring samples. The smaller the molecule and the more negative its charge, the closer it gets to the finish line. By determining where it finishes its "race", scientists can make a determination about the identity of the molecule.
