Study Notes

Molecular Biology Techniques

  • Gel electrophoresis is used to separate DNA fragments based on their size.
  • Blotting techniques, such as Southern blotting, are used to transfer DNA fragments from a gel to a membrane, allowing for the detection of specific sequences using probes.
  • Genetic engineering, also known as recombinant DNA technology, involves the manipulation of DNA to create new combinations of genetic material, enabling the introduction of desired traits into organisms.

Test your knowledge on molecular biology techniques such as gel electrophoresis, blotting techniques, and recombinant DNA technology. Learn about the purpose of blotting techniques in molecular biology and the manipulation of DNA to create new combinations of genetic material. Discover which technique is used to separate DNA fragments based on their size.
