a: Southern blotting ~
b: the suspect identification process

What: "Southern blotting is like the suspect identification process in crime investigations. The band patterns of different samples are lined up next to each other like the suspects are lined up. The perpetrator stands out to the victim, so the victim is able to identify which one it is. In comparison, the fluorescent bands of particular genes stand out in southern blotting, allowing the identification of genetic disease carriers."
