Paper Abstract

A quantitative study of the rise, magnitude, and decay of birefringence of DNA in agarose gel under an electric pulse E has been performed. It provides us with the molecular weight dependence of the characteristic times which describe the deformation of the chain during the transport and which are the parameters requested for designing electric pulse programs for pulsed field gel electrophoresis capable of achieving separation of DNA fragments of very high molecular weight.
