DNA-DNA Hybridization

Mitochondrial DNA is extracted from 2 different species of organism, P and Q.

Radioactive labeling is attached to the DNA of species P.

The labeled DNA from species P is mixed with unlabelled DNA from species Q.

The mixture of DNA from both species is heated.

Heating denatures the DNA of both species; the strands of DNA are separated as hydrogen bonds between bases break.

The mixed of single stranded DNA is cooled
