• DNA Electrophoresis and Restriction Enzymes
•  On the third page when it tells you to make a restriction map what you are supposed to do is figure out the length of each fragment. The entire length is 48,502 (we know this because the lambda, control, shows us).  To find the lengths of each other segment you simply subtract out the end from the beginning.  For example the first section of EcoRI is 21,226 - which is easy because it is given - and to find the second I simply subtract 21,226 from 26,104.  Once you have the lengths of all the fragments you enter them in the chart from largest to smallest.  Then on the final page you run a simulated gel electrophoresis where you put a line where each one would end up.  Our example that was 21,226 would be a line just above the 20,000.
