New gel electrophoresis video from Genes in Space!

Genes in Space has a new video! In our last video, we covered the Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR), the technique essential to all Genes in Space proposals. However, PCR is only the first step in a typical DNA experiment, the DNA must still be analyzed using another technique. Gel electrophoresis is one technique for visualizing DNA and other molecules. Genes in Space teamed up with science vlogger Alex Dainis to help you understand how this technique works and how it can be used in your Genes in Space experiment.
