South·ern blot a·nal·y·sis

(sŭdh'ĕrn),
a procedure to separate and identify DNA sequences; DNA fragments are separated by electrophoresis on an agarose gel, transferred (blotted) onto a nitrocellulose or nylon membrane, and hybridized with complementary (labeled) nucleic acid probes.

Southern blot analysis

n.
A technique for identifying specific sequences of DNA in which DNA fragments are separated by electrophoresis, transferred to nitrocellulose, and identified with a suitable probe.
