Gel Electrophoresis of Dna — New Measurements and the Repton Model at High Fields ∗

New experimental data are presented on the gel electrophoresis of DNA. Experiment was made for molecules of length 173 kbp, in 1 percent agarose gel, in TAE 1× buffer and the field intensity between 5 and 9 V/cm. The results are compared with our computer simulations, performed within the repton model of Duke and Rubinstein. The ranges of field and molecule… (More)
