Today we poured and ran our DNA gels.. the professor put in the concentrated samples and I put in our 10X dilution samples. To get the samples in the gel we had to take a pipette and slowly inject the solution into the wells in the DNA gels... After a while this gets difficult because you really have no room to mess up because if you go side to side you can mess up the wells and if you go to far down you can puncture the gel. But I finally got the hang of it and after some time we were able start our gel at 10V. The professor decided to use a power supply from the physics department because last time when we used the power supply that is in the lab it shut down during the night and messed up our results.
