  • PHS AP Biology completes gel electrophoresis lab

    Students in Jennifer Pergler's Advanced Placement (AP) biology class at Peoria High School had the opportunity to perform gel electrophoresis as part of the unit on DNA. Electrophoresis is a technique used in laboratories in order to separate macromolecules based on size. The technique applies a negative charge so proteins move toward a positive charge. Electrophoresis is typically performed in college-level biology classes, so this is an important step in preparing the AP biology students for college-level biology. Peoria High School was able to purchase the equipment to perform the process last year and students and faculty have been anxious to use it. “Students worked so hard prepping for and completing this lab. We are all so proud of them,” says Pergler.
