Introduction
Analyses of uncharacterized DNA fragments using CHEF electrophoresis often require preliminary studies to determine what size ranges DNA fragments of interest fall within. It is not uncommon to run more than one gel in order to fully characterize large DNA fragments from a single cell source1. This is because DNA fragments under 200 kilobase pairs (kbp), between 200 kbp and 2 megabase pairs (mbp), and between 2 mbp and 6 mbp are optimally separated by CHEF electrophoretic techniques using different switching frequencies, electrophoretic field strengths, angles of orientation (if using a Bio-Rad CHEF Mapper system), and/or agarose type and concentration2. Data is presented illustrating that an initial estimate of sizes can be obtained in a single gel by using a biphasic linear switch time ramping procedure.


Results
A biphasic linear switch time ramping strategy3 with a fixed electric field strength can be used with the CHEF-DR II system to resolve linear DNA fragments ranging from 23 kbp to 5.7 mbp in size on a single gel (Figure 1). The gel shown in Figure 1A was 0.5% Chromosomal Grade Agarose made in 0.5x TBE (45 mM Tris borate, 1.0 mM EDTA, pH 8.0), recirculated at 10 C. The applied electric field was held constant at 1.95 V/cm (65 V), and switch times were ramped linearly from 30 seconds to 2 minutes over 33 hours, then from 2 minutes to 50 minutes over 55 hours. Under these conditions, the chromosomes of Schizosaccharomyces pombe (closed circles,
