GelyMac – Calculate DNA Fragment sizes from Gel Electrophoresis Migration data



GelyMac is a program developed at Reed College which calculates DNA fragment sizes from gel electrophoresis migration data. GelyMac runs on a Macintosh computer only. The first step in using the GelyMac program is to enter data for a known marker. Both the distances traveled and the fragment sizes are entered. Then the distances migrated by up to 19 sets of DNA fragments are entered, and the program calculates the sizes of these fragments using a cubic-spline interpolation. These results are displayed on the screen and may also be printed.
