Last year I experimented with DNA extraction in Dendrobia Hybrid II orchids. I was able to extract DNA from 3 varieties of this species, but could not measure the atomic weight. The DNA was processed using electrophoresis. I would like to see if there is a difference in weight of the DNA structure between varieties. Can you help me determine how to do this or what equipment is needed? The samples I used were mass out equally, but once I extracted the DNA from each sample I was unable to go further. Do you need an electro microscope to view differences in DNA samples like these. Thank you. Hope
Re: After orchid DNA is extracted how can atomic weight be measured?
