How does SnapGene estimate supercoiled DNA migration rates in an agarose gel simulation?

We generated empirical data (lots of gels and measurements) to generate formula's that allow SnapGene to calculate accurate migration rates of different sizes of supercoiled DNA in different buffers and gel percentages.

See our User Guide articles – Initiate an Agarose Gel Simulation and Set Preferences for Agarose Gel Simulations – for more information.
