Gel Electrophoresis: Visualize and separate nucleic acids

Welcome to the Nucleic Acid Gel Electrophoresis simulation. Electrophoresis is a technique to separate charged macromolecules based on their size, using an electric current. In this simulation, you will learn how you can use gel electrophoresis to separate and visualize DNA and RNA molecules. You will load and analyze a gel and see what happens inside the gel tank while it runs.
