Using a Gel Filtration Chromatogram to Estimate Molecular Weight

Gel filtration chromatography (also known as size exclusion chromatography, molecular sieve chromatography, or gel permeation chromatography) is based on the differential distribution of the components in a sample between the mobile and stationary phases. Specifically, in gel filtration chromatography, this differential distribution depends on the size and shape of the components. Here, we take a…

The Real-Time PCR Digest

In the 30 odd years since its invention, the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) has become the bread and butter technique of molecular biologists. The secret to its indispensability lies in its simplicity and versatility. Numerous variants of the technique have been developed; one of these, real-time PCR, has become the method of choice for quantitative…
