Agarose electrophoresis is an important tool for isolating DNA by its molecular weight; following separation of DNA molecules, the DNA needs to be purified from the agarose for further applications. The Purification of a Gene kit teaches the recovery and purification of DNA fragments following agarose electrophoresis. This technique is commonly used in molecular biology and is important for purifying fragments for subsequent cloning.
