Uncut genomic DNA - Migrate through the gel (Nov/26/2006 )

During agarose gel electrophoresis my uncut genomic DNA has migrate approx. third of the way down the gel. Why is this? It is meant to stay close to the well.



i am not sure i understood what you mean. unsure.gif it will appear as many bands, usually higher than the cut one.


where is your uncut DNA in relation to the DNA ladder?


may you post a picture of your gel? or be more precise in your exp description ?
