There seem to be around only 15 questions now but I guess they'd steadily increase. Somehow I don't know which tag to fit such questions under

  • $\begingroup$ I'm shrugging about this, and if people need it, then why not $\ldots$ also as a FYI, Biology.SE has a gel-electrophoresis tag. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ There should be this tag as electrochemistry isn't suitable for this $\endgroup$

Although there are currently only 6 questions mentioning electrophoresis, we have tags that are viable and have fewer uses. I am looking at you !

I have applied it to What causes the DNA fragments to stop moving in gel electrophoresis? since you lack the privilege. Please go ahead, apply it to other questions, and write a short tag usage and wiki.


I’m leaning towards no. In fact, I think that most of the questions that would ask for an tag have either been already asked or are better asked over at biology.

Electrophoresis is very much a biological method that many chemists know little about, especially if they are far away from biochemistry/chemical biology. Thus it makes little sense to have such a tag here.
