DNA damages that can be converted to single- or double strand breaks can be quantified by separating DNA by gel electrophoresis and obtaining a quantitative image of the resulting distribution of DNA in the gel. We review the theory of this method and discuss its implementation, including the charge-coupled device (CCD) camera systems we developed to acquire images of fluorophore labeled DNA.
