An accurate method for estimating sizes of small and large plasmids and DNA fragments by gel electrophoresis.

Several regression methods were tested for estimating the sizes of a wide range of plasmids (1.37-312 MDa) and restriction fragments (2.2-14.2 MDa) by agarose gel electrophoresis. The most accurate and least variable method was the multiple regression of log10 molecular size against log10 relative mobility and the reciprocal square root of the relative… CONTINUE READING
