    Electrophoretic mobility, describes the velocity of a particle moving through a gel matrix under the influence of an electrical field. Given a constant electrical field, what characteristics of the molecule influence its velocity through the matrix? State whether these characteristics enhance or diminish the particle's migration through the gel.
