  5. 5. Step 3Place restriction enzymes into DNA The restriction enzymes cut the DNA into different sizes according to it’s sequence
  6. 6. Step 4Dye DNA and place into Gel
  7. 7. Step 5 Run electric current through gelDNA is negativelycharged so it will movetowards the positivelycharged end of the gel
