X-Ray Film from Short and Long Sequencing Run

Can you figure out the source of the DNA?

Figure 1. Sequence from an unknown piece of DNA. A single sequencing reaction was loaded into four lanes, allowed to run for a couple hours (right set of 4 lanes; called the long run) and then more of the same reaction was loaded and run for another two hours (left set of 4 lanes; called the short run).


Two more examples of autoradiograms (autorads)you can view: Example One and Example Three.
