capillary gel electrophoresis

A type of electrophoresis in which charged biomolecules (e.g., DNA) are separated by filling a capillary tube with a gel matrix, in which shorter strands of DNA migrate more quickly than longer strands. CGE can be used to identify single-base deletion products or truncated sequences from full-length nucleic acids by analysing inserted synthetic oligonucleotides.
