a: agarose ~
b: a sieve

What:

"The agarose helps separate the molecules by size. The agarose is like a sieve and larger molecules have
a harder time moving through than smaller molecules. "

a: Agarose ~
b: a sponge with small holes

What: "The agarose is like a sponge with small holes in it. Therefore, the smaller DNA fragments can move through the gel at a faster rate than larger fragments and the larger fragments are found nearer the point of origin."

A Molecular Maze It Is

a: Agarose gel ~
b: complex maze with very tiny channels

What: "An agarose gel is like a complex maze with very tiny channels. DNA has a negative charge and will move toward the positive pole in an electrical field. Short pieces of DNA navigate more easily through the maze and therefore move a greater distance. An indicator dye is added to the DNA digest prior to injecting it into the gel so that the researcher can tell when the small fragments have run the length of the gel."

a: Agarose gel ~
b: strainer

What: "Proteins are like different sized noodles and the agarose gel is like a strainer, filled with little holes. Proteins that are small moves easily through the holes in the agarose gel, while larger proteins move more slowly, getting stuck in the holes in the gel. Thus, protein gel electrophoresis allows students to spread out the proteins from different bovine tissues, creating a protein fingerprint that serves as a barcode to identify that type of cell or tissue."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
