In this week’s lab, we obtained the DNA that was extracted from plant tissue previously and were able to run a gel electrophoresis analysis. The DNA was kept on ice until the procedure began. This included the dotting of purple dye on parafilm with a micropipette, using a singular tip, and added the some DNA to each dot with the same micropipette, but changing tips every time a new dot of DNA was added. Once the DNA was combined with the dye, we were able to use a micropipette that was set to a larger quantity to account for both the dye and DNA to transfer the colored DNA to the gel. We began by filling the first well with my samples and proceeded with each other member of the group, and then the last well was filled with the ladder by Professor Paul. The gel ran on a low voltage for an extended time in order to prevent running off on the gel.
