Investigation 9: Biotechnology - Restriction Enzyme Analysis of DNA
Analysis of Eco RI Cleavage Patterns of Lambda DNA
This experiment introduces the use of restriction enzymes as a tool to digest DNA at specific nucleotide sequences. Bateriophage lambda DNA has a linear structure and 6 Eco RI recognition sites. Separation by agarose gel electrophoresis of an Eco RI digest of lambda DNA will yield 6 bands (5 distinct bands, two are very close in size) corresponding to the DNA fragments.
