Description: Enzymes in forest tree materials can be resolved by starch gel electrophoresis. A gel slab is prepared in a mold assembled from glass and plastic. Wicks containing an aqueous extract of macerated plant material are inserted in the gel and processed. The gel is sliced, stained, examined, and photographed. Isozyme bands produced by differential migration of enzymes indicate genetic segregation and recombination. This technique is familiar in other uses, but the procedure described here is specifically adapted to conifers.
Keywords: coniferae, natural variation, genetic diversity, chemical composition, enzyme
