Import and analyze your second gel

This video shows you to process a second gel that is run with the same reference system as the first gel that was imported in the database. Processing this gel goes much faster since the reference system is already present in the database.

Fingerprints

Any type of data that can be translated into a densitometric curve is considered a fingerprint type in the BioNumerics and GelCompar II software. This includes commonly used genotyping methods employing agarose or polyacrylamide slab gel electrophoresis (PFGE, rep-PCR, RAPD, PCR-DGGE, etc.), in which case the data are usually imported as two-dimensional gel images (bitmaps). Another major group consists of capillary electrophoresis profiles such as AFLP, ARISA, T-RFLP, etc. Here, the raw electropherograms generated by an automated sequencer (genetic analyzer) or derived peak table text files can be imported. Finally, any other profile (generated e.g. by gas chromatography, HPLC or spectrophotometry) that can be seen as peaks or bands, can be analyzed as a fingerprint.
